You May Not Want To Swim In This Washington Lake This Summer Due To A Dangerous Discovery

Summer in Washington is the perfect time to get out there and enjoy the state’s plethora of outdoor attractions. Unfortunately, however, there’s one popular attraction that requires special precaution this season. Just 20 minutes from Port Townsend, Anderson Lake has shown high levels of toxic Blue-Green Algae in recent reports. While the state park is still open for day use, visitors have been warned to steer clear of the water’s temporary — yet dangerous — toxins.
