Algae and harmful algae blooms may occur at bathing beaches. 

Avoid it.

Look for signs at beaches. If a beach is closed due to an algae bloom, do not swim in the water. A beach may reopen once a bloom has cleared for at least 24 hours and bathing water sample results are below the level of concern.
