Warning Issued To Avoid Charles River Due To Algae Bloom

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A public health advisory has been issued after a toxic blue-green algae was discovered in the Charles River.

According to the Charles River Watershed Association, the advisory comes after the algae was located in the stretch of river between the Museum of Science and the Mass Ave Bridge.

The conservation group said people shouldn’t contact the water themselves or allow their dogs swim in the area, because cyanobacteria blooms can kill animals and make humans sick.
