- Toxic algae kills 2 dogs after swim in Napa County pond
By Michael Bodley - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
A growth of blue-green algae in a pond in southern Napa County killed two dogs that swam in the murky water this week, causing local officials Friday to issue a county-wide warning.The warning by the county’s board of supervisors urges would-be swimmers to avoid ponds, rivers and streams in the area that may be contaminated with the toxic blue-green algae.Algae poisoning in people can cause serious injury to the liver, kidney and nervous system if the affected water is swallowed.The algae blooms, which can be blue-green, white or brown in appearance, are caused by sitting or slow-moving water with an abundance of nutrients, officials said.
