In addition, in any body of water, harmful blue-green algae blooms are a common natural phenomenon. In Illinois, these natural harmful blooms typically occur June through September.

Due to this possibility, the following guidelines are strictly enforced for your safety:

  • Keep dogs out of the water. Do not allow dogs to drink the pond water
  • Do not come in contact with the water yourself
  • Wash skin or fur that comes into contact with the water thoroughly as soon as possible
