(SNOHOMISH, WA.) -- City officials say low levels of toxic algae (also called blue-green algae) have been detected at Blackmans Lake.
Residents are advised to "avoid areas of algae and scum" when swimming and boating in Blackmans Lake.
The blue-green algae can cause illness in humans and pets.
According to the Washington Department of Health a combination of warm temperatures, sunlight and nutrient-rich waters can cause the algae to "appear and reproduce rapidly."
Eventually the toxins break down in the water and are destroyed naturally. Contact the Snohomish Health District at 425-339-5250 for any health related questions about blue-green algae.
