Lookout for blue-green algae as the weather gets warmer

Nova Scotia is reminding residents to be on the lookout for blue-green algae as the weather gets warmer. The province wants people to stay safe while enjoying lakes and rivers this summer. Blue-green algae, also known as cyanobacteria, is a naturally occurring substance found in freshwater. It grows more often in warmer weather and can look like fine glass clippings, spilled paint, or pea soup in the water. The province is implementing a new pilot project using QR codes to provide recent information about the area.
