Algae specks found in Indian River Lagoon

Specks of algae found in Indian River Lagoon

 Algae specks found in Indian River Lagoon

Stuart, Fl- Green specks of algae were spotted floating in the Indian River Lagoon near Hutchinson Island last Thursday. This was after weeks of reports of algae on the St. Lucie River.

Staff members of the Florida Oceanographic Society have been checking the water in the lagoon behind the coastal center on Hutchinson Island every day. They snapped pictures of the green specks of algae floating on the water and immediately put up warning signs telling people to avoid contact with the water in that area.

The Florida Oceanographic Society reported the algae to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection right away.  FDEP’s testing website doesn’t show any sampling done there yet.
