The state Department of Environmental Conservation is asking recreationalists to be on the lookout for harmful algae blooms that can be hazardous to the health of people and pets.

Blooms typically appear in mid-August. Touching, swallowing and inhaling the toxic blooms are dangerous for both humans and their four-legged friends, the DEC warns.

People should avoid swimming, boating, otherwise recreating in, or drinking water with a bloom, according to a statement issued by the DEC.
