June 28, 2018 –  UPDATE: Lake Alert for Lake Arnold has been LIFTED

The City’s Stormwater Division found high levels of toxins in Lake Arnold on June 21, resulting from an algae bloom. Gross.

Blue-green algae are always present in the water but in cases of excessive nutrients (run-off from your neighbor’s too-green lawn), warm water (Florida summer), the levels can spike. Blue-green algae can also produce toxins that are harmful. Because, toxic.

The City is asking residents to refrain from, swimming, recreating, and basically having anything to do with the lake until they give us the green (or blue-green) light.

Lake Arnold is located in Dover Shores West, just south of Lake Underhill [GMap].

PS – When blue-green algae die off, it smells bad.
