Blue-green algae update:
Sept. 5, 2017
The City of Woodbury completed toxin testing on Carver Lake water samples during the last week of August as a result of a blue-green algal bloom.  The results showed very low levels of toxins commonly produced by blue-green algae. While the results provide information on the previous bloom, it is not possible to predict future blue-green algal blooms nor if the blooms will produce toxins.  The Carver Lake Beach is closed for the season and will reopen as usual in the spring. 

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency offers the following recommendations to lake users:

  • People and animals should avoid contact with water with blue-green algae. 
  • Watch for signs of recent blooms, such as green scum on the shoreline. When in doubt, stay out!
  • If you or your pet go into water where there may be a bloom, wash off with fresh water immediately afterwards.
