Algae Lake Watch
Thurston County Environmental Health Division is looking for volunteers to “watch” Thurston County lakes for algae blooms. Toxic blue green algae blooms can kill pets, water fowl and other animals. They can also cause serious illness in humans
1. Notify them by email or phone, when you see an algae bloom
2. Take samples and deliver to their office in Olympia
3. Post warning signs in your neighborhood
4. Distribute toxic algae alerts to your neighbors
To become a Lake Watch Volunteer, you can either print, fill out and send them the attached sign up form (click link) or you can enter your information and submit the form electronically.
