Closed Bay Village Beaches To Be Retested For Algae This Week
Officials from Cuyahoga County’s Board of Health will be back out to beaches in Bay Village this week to check for hazards from an algae bloom.
The algae at Columbia Park Beach and Bay Park Beach was found last week.
Tests for the harmful bacteria caused by algae came back under the hazardous threshold, said Tom Fink from the board of health.
An advisory was posted in the park at the end of Columbia Road and the public access was closed off by Bay Village officials.
If this week’s test also comes back below the threshold, the public health advisory will be lifted, Fink said.
No algae blooms have been detected at popular nearby Lake Erie beaches operated by Metroparks.
