'Enter water at your own risk.' Algae at California lakes poses risk

Blue-green algae has been detected in three central San Joaquin Valley lakes that poses a public health risk.

Algae blooms have been popping up at Pine Flat Lake since the middle of June, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers warned. Friday, the Corps added warnings for two more lakes under its control, Eastman and Hensley in Madera County.

The Corps said this week that while the algae, cyanobacteria, was detected in June 15 water samples at Pine Flat, toxin levels were not present in recent tests. Still, signs warning of the algae have been posted around the lake as a precaution.
