Images of Algae Blooms in the North Fork Shenandoah River

Pictures taken this morning of the algae blooms in the North Fork Shenandoah River off of Bethel Road upstream of Deer Rapids in Shenandoah County, VA.
The Lord Fairfax Health District of the Virginia Health Department is cautioning people not to swim in that area until the results of an algae test come in later this week. The algae blooms discovered at the Bethel Road area of Strasburg could be cyanobacteria, which “has the ability to put out a neurotoxin.”
