Algae Is Blooming in Lake Okeechobee, Raising Concerns of Another Ecological Disaster in Florida

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Blooms of hazardous blue-green algae are appearing again on Florida’s Lake Okeechobee, and residents are worried it could mean a replay of the monster blooms they saw in 2016.

Over the past few days, the algae was spotted pouring out of the lake during planned water releases and flowing toward the St. Lucie River, according to TCPalm.com. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection sent a crew to collect water samples, and a toxic form of cyanobacteria was found in the samples.

“I can see algae here on the east shore of the lake, and it’s getting sucked through the dam,” Florida Oceanographic Society executive director Mark Perry told TCPalm.com. “Once it goes through, it gets mixed in with all the muddy, dirty water and you can’t see it anymore. But it’s heading our way, and it sure looks like blue-green algae.”
