Blue and Green should (hopefully) never be seen

Algae that is. Here at Rufford we have an extensive water course including a lake and a Conservation Area. We test the water at both sites weekly for pollution and signs of the infamous Blue Green Algae.
We collect a water sample at the start of the week and get results soon thereafter. We get an email stating the risk and amount of Algae. The Blue Green Algae is harmful to animals and spreads rapidly when it gets hotter.
