Toxic Algae Bloom Reported At Lewiston Lake

Lewiston Lake is infected with toxic algae. The toxic algal mats can be attached to the bottom, detached and floating or washed up on shore. Trinity County Environmental Health is advising people not to make any contact with the material and not to let their dogs drink from the water. Laboratory tests were conducted on Lewiston Lake water after Labor Day weekend and the results show the presence of Cyanotoxins.
