GLEN ULLIN, N.D. (AP) - State health and agriculture officials are cautioning people about the presence of blue-green algae in Lake Tschida (CHY’-duh) in Grant County.

People and animals that ingest water affected by blue-green algae can get sick and even die. There’s no known antidote for the toxins.

Hot summer weather contributes to the production of the algae that’s also known as cyanobacteria.

Lake Tschida also is known as Heart Butte Dam. It’s south of Glen Ullin. Officials say people and their animals should avoid areas in the lake where the algae are blooming.
