These 6 Lakes In Maine Are At Highest Risk For Toxic Blue-Green Algae
If you’ve been keeping up with the news you’ve likely heard about the number of pets who have been killed by exposure to harmful algae found in places like North Carolina and Texas. While it’s seemed like this would be relegated to other parts of the country, Maine has a high probability of joining the list of states affected by it. Many Maine lakes see algae blooms every year and officials are closely watching our waters to make sure residents are aware of any blooms that become toxic.
