    Meredith Diskin has marked this issue as resolved.

    Thank you for your concern. We are currently issuing a special warning for parts of Perdido Bay due to the presence of a lyngbya algal bloom. We do not recommend swimming if you are seeing the bloom in your water. The algae itself can cause skin irritation and potentially stomach illness. The bloom can also cause increased levels of fecal indicator bacteria such as E. coli and Enterococcus. At this time we have no evidence there has been a sewage spill or other release of human fecal matter but we continue to monitor the issue.
