Blue-green algae Advisory for Sandy Lake.
If large amounts of green scum are visible in the water it is advisable to take the following precautions:
• Avoid swimming or other contact with the water.
• Do not drink the water (boiling or chlorination will not make the water safe).
• Prevent pets or livestock from drinking the water along the shoreline, as this could be fatal to animals.
• Do not eat fish that appear unhealthy.
