LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- State and federal officials have posted advisories about elevated levels of toxic algae in some Kentucky lakes.
The Courier-Journal reports the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers in Louisville says it has five lakes in Kentucky with elevated levels while the Kentucky Division of Water has one.
Most of the lakes were put in a "caution" category, which means the water poses a moderate risk of adverse health effects. Exposure could cause skin or eye irritation, nausea and flu-like symptoms.
The lakes with caution advisories include Taylorsville Lake, where a toxic blue-green algae bloom was found for the first time in 2012.
