Possible Algae Bloom at These Jersey Shore Bodies of Water
We were talking on the air earlier today about the toxic algae bloom that has been forming in ponds and lakes in North Jersey and North Carolina where a woman's three dogs died after playing around in the water on a hot day.
Thanks to Nicole Murray from our sister station 94.3 The Point for reporting that there a few lakes on the Jersey Shore that are under an advisory for the deadly algae bloom that you need to stay away from for the time being.
- Manasquan Reservoir in Howell Township: Remains under advisory
- Deal Lake in Asbury Park: Remains under advisory
- Sunset Lake in Asbury Park: Remains under advisory
If you suspect that you spotted one of these harmful algal blooms, call the Department of Environmental Protection(DEP) Hotline at 1(877) WARNDEP (877-927-6337) or you can also report it through their website.
