It appears that Florida isn’t the only state dealing with deadly toxic algae blooms as now a huge toxic algae bloom in Utah has reportedly closed one of the largest freshwater lakes west of the Mississippi River, The report indicates that the bloom has sickened more than 100 people and is leaving farmers scrambling for clean water for days during the hottest part of the year.

This toxic algae bloom bacteria commonly known as blue-green algae has spread rapidly to cover almost all of 150-square-mile Utah Lake, turning the water bright, anti-freeze green with a pea soup texture and leaving scummy foam along the shore. “It smells like something is rotting,” said Jason Garrett, water quality director for the Utah County Health Department.
