DEP AND DOH REMIND FLORIDA RESIDENTS AND VISITORS TO BE MINDFUL OF POTENTIAL SUMMERTIME ALGAL BLOOMS

Full Story
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –  The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Department of Health are encouraging residents and visitors to be mindful during summertime recreational activities as the season’s high temperatures, abundant sunlight and frequent rainstorms annually increase the presence of algal blooms in certain Florida waterbodies. Individuals should avoid contact with algae and can report algal blooms using DEP’s toll-free hotline (855-305-3903) and online at (www.reportalgalbloom.com). Currently there are no health advisories or any reason to believe the health of residents has been impacted.
