Health officials issue blue-green algae warning for Lake Sue

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County has issued a blue-green algae bloom caution for Lake Sue.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County has issued a Health Caution for the presence of blue-green algae in Lake Sue. This is in response to a site visit and water sample taken by the Florida Department of Environmental protection on Thursday, February 24.

Lake Sue is located just north of the Harry P. Leu Gardens and east of N Mills Avenue.

Blue-green algae is a type of bacteria that is common in Florida’s freshwater environments. A bloom occurs when rapid growth of algae leads to an accumulation of individual cells that discolor water and often produce floating mats that emit unpleasant odors. Many types of blue-green algae can produce toxins

Residents and visitors are advised to avoid drinking, swimming, wading, or using personal watercraft at Lake Sue until otherwise notified.
