Potentially Toxic Algal Bloom
From Livingston County Health Department and Washtenaw County Water Resources:
We were made aware of a potential harmful algal bloom on the north shoreline of Baseline Lake and the northern end of Portage Lake. Initial screening tests indicate some presence of toxins. As a precaution avoid swimming in those areas and keep pets out of the water. More information is contained in the attached informational brochure. This could be a common occurrence throughout the summer, so awareness from boaters/swimmers is key to prevent possible exposure to toxins.
