Blue-green algae detected at Red Bud Isle on Lady Bird Lake Jessica Hollis Park on Lake Austin
The City said the blue-green algae is mixed in with a lot of green algae, and it has not been tested yet. However, residents should assume that the algae may be toxic and avoid it. A harmful algae bloom occurs when blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) produce toxins.
