CAPE CORAL, Fla. — There is an update from the City of Cape Coral on the water quality conditions in our area.
In a report from Friday, they say the overall salinity in the Caloosahatchee promotes a healthy ecosystem.
Last year, during the blue-green algae crisis, the Lake Okeechobee level was over 14 feet, today, it is a little over 12 feet.
Cape Coral also says blue, green algae is still present in Lake O- and expanding.
However, no toxins are present in recent water samples from either Lake-O or the Caloosahatchee River.
Red tide was detected at background concentration in one offshore sample in Lee County last week.
