Local waterway blue-green algae
Hello, I am new to the Louisville area, and spend a lot of time outdoors (paddleboarding especially). I learned recently that some water areas were affected last year with a blue-green algae that can be fatal to dogs via direct ingestion, or ingestion later from a transported spore. My dog goes everywhere with me when outdoors, and loves to swim! I would love some information on when the algae is in bloom, if it affects all water, how to identify, etc. Any information/resources would be much appreciated! Thank you! Mikyla
