Blue Green Algae

Hello, how would I know that I have blue green algae in our irrigation ponds, and if yes, how to get rid of them. We have heard a lot about how toxic they are to animals, especially dogs. Our dogs love to swim in the ponds, and now we are worried. I would appreciate any help you can give us. Are there any test kits we could use? Thank you very much in advance, and have a great day!

Lots of Algae in the Pond

Two months ago, we moved into a house with a pond. We don't know the first thing about maintaining a pond. Now it is covered with algae. Who can I talk to? How do I get started? It's about a 1/10 of an acre.
Thanks,
Paul

Pond Recovery

I have owned a piece of land for 20 years. Sometime prior to my ownership it was a dairy farm. I believe it quit being a dairy farm at least 10 years before my purchase. There is a "pond" which my understanding was at one time a "manure tea" pond. We understand it has a natural clay base and if fed by a spring.

What is likely the status of the "pond" ? I'm not looking to swim in it, but how do we clean it up/make it usable for animals likes ducks or if my dog jumps in? Thank you.
