NORWALK, Ohio (AP) — A city in northern Ohio is telling residents to stay away from the water in two of its reservoirs because of harmful algae.
But the city of Norwalk says a third reservoir where it gets its drinking water is safe and that tests don’t show any of the dangerous toxins.
City officials are warning that it’s not safe to swim or touch the water in the two reservoirs where the toxins from the algae were detected.
They also are telling people to keep their pets away from the water.
The city south of Sandusky says it has started treating the water to get rid of the bloom.
