CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Officials in New Hampshire have issued swimming advisories for several beaches due to bacteria detected in the water.

The Department of Environmental Services is urging people to stay away from waters in Hudson, Henniker, Hollis, Laconia and Rindge.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OglnEJ ) a possible toxin-producing bacteria has been detected in Keyser Pond and Silver Lake in Hollis, at French Pond Beach in Henniker and Otterneck Pond in Hudson.

The waters were re-sampled on Monday, but the results have not yet been posted.

Officials say cyanobacteria is a danger to humans and dogs.

Fecal bacteria warnings will remain up through the holiday weekend for Bartlett Beach on Lake Winnisquam in Laconia, Opechee Cove Beach in Lake Opechee in Laconia and Pearly Lake in Rindge.
