HRM is investigating a possible toxic algae bloom in an urban lake

Information Morning - NS

Earlier this year many were shocked to hear about the three dogs that died in New Brunswick. They had all been swimming in a river contaminated with blue-green algae. Now, people who live near Oathill Lake in Dartmouth are concerned after blue-green algae was spotted there. HRM has taken lake water samples to test for toxicity, but the results aren't in yet. In the meantime the city has posted signs warning people not to swim or drink the lake water, and to keep their pets away from the water. Terry Rowell is a retired biologist who's lived on the lake for 48 years.
