Fernan Lake Invasion

Season 2 Episode 1 | 9m 44s

For more than 100 days a year, Fernan Lake falls under health warnings because of toxic blue-green algae blooms. Resident Marc Andrews says you could see the lake turning color. “It’s starting to look more like pea soup instead of water.” Lake managers and residents turned to scientists from the MILES project at the University of Idaho to help them understand what was happening.
