Dooley Pond Boat Launch


An increased risk of an algae bloom has made this area potentially unsafe for water contact.

Be alert and avoid skin contact with water that:

Looks like spilled paint
Has surface scums, mats or films
Is discolored or has colored streaks
Has green globs floating below the surface

Keep children and pets away from algae blooms and rinse off any exposed skin or fur with clean water.
