June 30, 2024

Warnings for cyanobacteria blooms on Lake Winnipesaukee were lifted Wednesday, according to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.

As of Thursday, the entirety of Lake Winnipesaukee is clear of cyanobacteria, a substance often referred to as blue-green algae.

If circumstances do not change, residents and visitors to the lake might expect good conditions on the water around the Independence Day holiday.

Cyanobacteria can be harmful to pets and animals.

Toxins can cause skin or eye irritation, negative health effects or even death in rare cases.

Anyone who falls ill after exposure to cyanobacteria should seek advice from a physician.
