Algae Bloom

Posted: Updated:

Algae blooms are becoming an issue not only nationally, but here in Montana as well.

According to the NOAA, these blooms are the result of microscopic algae flourishing and releasing dangerous toxins into the water. 

If you happen to see any algae-blooms, don't go anywhere near the water. 

However. if you notice it too late, simply rinse off and just be on the lookout for any symptoms such as a headache or fever.
