HEALTH ALERT:  HEALTH OFFICIALS ISSUE BLUE-GREEN ALGAE BLOOM ALERT FOR CALOOSAHATCHEE RIVER

LaBelle, Florida (June 9, 2021) The Florida Department of Health in Hendry has issued a Health Alert for the presence of harmful blue-green algal toxins in the Caloosahatchee River. This is in response to water samples taken on June 3, 2021. The public should exercise caution in and around Caloosahatchee River. Residents and visitors are advised to take the following precautions:

  • Do not drink, swim, wade, use personal watercraft, water ski or boat in waters where there is a visible bloom.

  • Wash your skin and clothing with soap and water if you have contact with algae or discolored or smelly water.

  • Keep pets away from the area. Waters where there are algae blooms are not safe for animals. Pets and livestock should have a different source of water when algae blooms are present.

  • Do not cook or clean dishes with water contaminated by algae blooms. Boiling the water will not eliminate the toxins.

  • Eating fillets from healthy fish caught in freshwater lakes experiencing blooms is safe. Rinse fish fillets with tap or bottled water, throw out the guts and cook fish well.

  • Do not eat shellfish in waters with algae blooms.
