Toxic algae prompts record number of Iowa Beach advisories Des Moines apr the number of Iowa Public beaches affected by toxic algae blooms reached a record this summer and Public health officials confirmed Friday that they Are investigating nine cases of possible human exposure. Toxic Blue Green algae increasingly a problem in lakes and Ponds in Many states can cause skin irritation nausea liver damage and respiratory problems for people. Pets and livestock ingesting the toxin can die. The Iowa department of natural resources has posted 27 Beach advisory warnings this summer due to Blue Green algae blooms a record that tops the 24 warnings posted in 2013. A a we re seeing More severe blooms and we think More toxic blooms As Well Quot said Mary Skopec who directs the Beach monitoring program for the Der. She said Many other states also Are dealing with the problem. Blue Green algae blooms Are believed to be caused by a combination of warmer temperatures and too much fertilizer and manure running off of farms and other pollution. Algae blooms sometimes Emit a toxin called Micro cystic which has been known to cause skin irritation and sicken people w to Swallow the water during swimming or breathe in water droplets containing the toxin. Since the Iowa department of Public health began tracking exposure to Micro cystic in 2009, cases have been reported each year said spokeswoman Polly Carver Kimm. The Agency is investigating nine cases this year a to determine if they can be classified As suspected cases of exposure for 2015.�?� mph records show three suspected cases in 2009, five human and three animal cases in 2010, 14 cases in 2011 and two cases in 2012. Statistics for 2013 and last year Haven to yet been compiled Carver Kimm said. Since 2006, the Der has issued 139 Beach warnings for High Levels of Micro cystic. Nearly two thirds were posted just in the past four years and five Iowa beaches were posted for the first time this year. Skopec says she a heard unofficial reports of at least two dog deaths attributed to Contact with Blue Green algae this year and Kansas officials have reported several dog deaths. The Der tests 40 state owned beaches in Iowa but there Are More than 130 lakes widely used for recreation by the Public owned by cities counties and others that Are not tested Skopec said. In addition thousands of private lakes and farm Ponds could Harbor toxic algae. A we recommend that if you Are in an area where its visibly showing masses of algae or a Blue Green paint color you should avoid Contact w Ith the water and keep pets away from it Quot she said. Environmental groups said its a Clear sign More should be done to protect the water. A to reduce the occurrence of these harmful algae blooms we must reduce the phosphorus pollution coming from farms City Laws and Urban and Industrial w Wastewater that is feeding the algae Quot said Susan Heathcote water program director for the Iowa environmental Council.
