Humboldt County Issues Blue-Green Algae Warning

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Officials with the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) are warning recreational users of all fresh water bodies to avoid contact with algae this summer and early fall.

 

Blue-green algae, also known as cyanobacteria, are found naturally in water and wet environments, but prefer warm, stagnant, nutrient-rich water and are found most often in ponds, lakes, and slow moving rivers.
