Horseshoe Pond alert issued after algae bloom
Extensive clouds of cyanobacteria have been discovered in the pond, prompting the New Hampshire State Department of Environmental Services to warn residents who may swim or wade in the water.
“This warning is intended as a precautionary measure to prevent short-term exposure to cyanobacteria toxins, and is not based on a toxin evaluation,” the release says.
A similar warning was issued last week for Province Lake in Effingham, where cyanobacteria bloom was discovered at the boat launch on Bonnyman Road and along Point, Bailey and Remick roads.
