NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) — A harmful algae bloom was spotted at Hyde Park in Niagara Falls on Thursday.
Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper was able to get a sample of it, later determining it to be cyanobacteria.
Two citizen reports of a potential bloom on Tonawanda Creek near the Bark Park were also received. This turned out to be a Euglena bloom in various life stages.
A similar Euglena bloom was seen on Ellicott Creek this year.
People should avoid discolored water when visiting these places, as it could be hazardous.
