An aerial photo shared by the local health department in Livingston County shows the growth around Vitale Park.
Health officials say it isn’t impacting the public water supply, but residents are being advised to not use the lake water directly- or swim near the blooms.
Blue-green algae can cause rashes, nausea, and upper-respiratory issues.
