Cyanobacteria blooms, also known as blue-green algae, are both unsightly and dangerous. Ensuring we have a full report of all blooms that occur in Lake Carmi is critical to not only our clean water work, but also keeping our community safe. If you spot a cyanobacteria bloom, whether you are a full time resident or just visiting Lake Carmi, there are actions you can take to help!
There are two actions you can take if you suspect you see a cyanobacteria bloom:
- Visit https://www.healthvermont.gov/tracking/cyanobacteria-tracker for more information regarding how to identify cyanobacteria and report it.
- Contact the FWC Watershed Coordinator to inform them. We ask you include three clear photos of the bloom along with the location it was spotted. This will allow us to file a report.
