You’ve got your goggles on, you’re slicked up with sunscreen, your water shoes are firmly in place, you’re about to jump in the lake—and there it is: foamy pea soup, right on the top of the water. Though you might be tempted to take the leap anyway, it’s best to take a step back. Cyanobacteria blooms aren’t just any normal lake growth, and they can make people and animals really sick. Here in Charlotte, working through the Lake Champlain Committee, volunteers are testing the water so you can jump in without fear.

Boat launch stewards with the Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) noted this week that nearly all fishing boats returning to the Shelburne Bay and Converse Bay launches had downriggers infested with the tiny organisms. LCBP stewards removed, treated and disposed of the fishhook waterfleas. The alarming news for anglers and lake ecology came during the busy holiday period of Canada Day on July 1 and the July 4th holiday in the U.S.

Property owners on Long Point in North Ferrisburgh decided to form a “Weed Committee” to study the problem.
