Golden Algae is a microscopic algae that can be devastating to the health of lakes and fish. Unfortunately, it can be carried by birds, other animals, or simply on the wind and is very difficult to prevent. The recent addition of reclaimed water to the lakes creates a nutrient rich environment for this and other types of algae growth. At the beginning of an outbreak, small amounts of dead fish will be seen.In order to manage algae outbreaks and other lake health issues, the HOA contracts with lake management specialists who regularly monitor the lake water for problems. Depending on the problem, the lakes are treated with fish- and wildlife-safe products.
