The Florida Department of Health in Flagler County has lifted the health alert issued on May 31 for the presence of harmful blue-green algal toxins in Bull Creek north of the Bull Creek Fish Camp.

Follow-up water samples taken by the Department of Environmental Protection did not detect algal toxins, indicating that the public may resume water-related activities. 

Exercise caution and good judgement: Blue-green algae blooms can move around or subside and then reappear when conditions are favorable again.

Avoid contact with the water if blooms are observed.

Sample results can be viewed at https://protectingfloridatogether.gov/water-quality-status-dashboard and at https://floridadep.gov/AlgalBloom.

Report symptoms from exposure to a harmful algal bloom or any aquatic toxin to the Florida Poison Information Center. Call 1-800-222-1222 to speak to a poison specialist.
