Blue-green algae bloom prompts swim beach closure


PLAINVIEW, Ark. (KTHV)- The Army Corps of Engineers, Nimrod Project Office is closing all swim beaches on Nimrod Lake until further notice. The temporary closure is the result of a blue-green algae bloom. Corps officials said boating and fishing is allowed, but urges visitors to avoid the algae when out on the lake.

The Corps posted signs to alert visitors that swimming is not allowed on the lake until the algae bloom has dissipated or tests confirm that it is safe. The result from algae testing is expected by Aug. 1.

Visitors are advised not to drink untreated lake water, and avoid areas with visible algae accumulations or discolored water. Children and animals are the most susceptible to illness and skin irritations when exposed to toxic algae.

Some types of blue-green algae produce natural toxins or poisons. When these algae die and break down, toxins can be released into the water.
