Blue-Green Algae at Lake Sarah


The Union-Lake Sarah social media page notified the public over the weekend of a water sample testing positive for the cyanobacteria that make up blue-green algae in Lake Sarah. The sample was tested by the Red Lake Watershed District tested twice for bacteria and it was positive both times.  The Red Lake Watershed notified Lake Sarah of a recommendation for humans and pets to stay out of the water and to make sure pets do not drink water from the lake. The Red Lake Watershed does plan to test other area lakes within the Red Lake Watershed District this week.
