Reston Association is urging members to avoid contact with Lake Newport after a possibly harmful algae bloom developed at the lake this week.

The association will continue to monitor the algae, but there are not immediate plans to treat the lake.

Forecasted rain and cooler temperatures should take care of the issue, RA wrote in a statement.

Residents should “regard the algae as potentially harmful” and avoid contact with the water. Pet owners should ensure their pets avoid ingesting or coming into contact with the water as well.

Anyone with additional questions should contact William Peterson at [email protected].
