AlgaeWashtenaw County Health Department reminds residents that a public health advisory for harmful algal blooms in Ford Lake in Ypsilanti, Michigan remains in effect. People and pets should avoid direct body contact with scums in the lake, water that is blue-green, or water that looks like it has a green sheen or spilled paint on its surface. People and pets should also avoid swallowing the lake water.

There are different types of naturally occurring algal blooms that may be seen on lakes and rivers. Most are not harmful. However, there are some that are made of cyanobacteria that have the ability to produce toxins, causing a harmful algal bloom (HAB). Earlier this summer, a Ford Lake resident notified MDHHS of a suspected HAB when they saw an area of water that had a “spilled paint” look on the surface. Additionally, testing in August confirmed microcystin toxin in the water, indicating the possibility of a HAB. This advisory is issued to alert the public to the possibility of a HAB. Residents should avoid direct body contact with scums in the lake, water that is blue-green, or water that looks like it has a green sheen or spilled paint on its surface. Water samples taken this month and observations (Sept 21) confirm conditions consistent with HAB are still present.
