State beach monitors say they’re still observing cyanobacteria blooms on New Hampshire’s lakes and ponds, even this late in the year.
Blooms have been seen recently on shorelines in on Country Pond Newton and on Webster Lake Franklin. They appear as green or blue streaks, flecks and pond scum, caused by excess nutrients in the water.
Cyanobacteria can contain toxins that can sicken or harm humans and pets on contact and can lead to serious chronic conditions.
