Harmful algae blooms found in Pontiac Lake and Sugden Lake

Lake Temescal in Oakland and Quarry Lakes in Fremont will reopen to swimmers Saturday after blooms of toxic blue-green algae cleared up, the East Bay Regional Park District announced Friday.

Because it is unknown when an algae bloom becomes toxic, officials warn people should avoid contact with water that has visible algae or algae scum on the surface.

The algae is unsafe for both humans and pets and can cause skin irritation, sore eyes and throat, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea within hours of contact.

AHS advises lake users not to swim or wade in areas with the algae. If contact occurs, wash with tap water as soon as possible.

A sample taken by Stony Brook University confirmed the presence of new cyanobacteria blooms, more commonly known as blue-green algae, the Health Department said.

The blooms happen when there there is strong sunshine, and very little wind or rain to mix up the lake waters.
