Kimtu Beach free of Blue Green Algae
WILLOW CREEK- Toxic blue green algae is no longer detected at Kimtu Beach in Willow creek.
The Department of Health and Human Services has lifted the health advisory that was put in place August 20th. New lab results show that the toxins are no longer showing up in the water and are not a threat to the general public.
The health advisory for the beach was first issued when flows in the river were lower. DHHS is still encouraging residents to be careful of the algae in other rivers, like the Eel, Mad River and Van Duzen. The toxin can be very dangerous to pets and children and cause serious illnesses.
