Lake Winnebago water quality study to begin

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - This is the time of year when blue-green algae makes its presence known in many Wisconsin lakes.

The state DNR is warning swimmers and boaters to watch out for algae blooms. Those blooms typically grow in August due to rising water temperatures, and other conditions which make algae growth possible.

Last week, UW-Milwaukee said it received a three-quarter million dollar national grant to test Lake Winnebago – the state’s largest inland lake – to see if blue-green algae create toxins in drinking water.

Officials say the toxins can cause rashes, hives, aching stomachs, and flu-like symptoms.
