AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Quincy Reservoir in Aurora has closed early for the season because of blue-green algae. The poor water quality forced the closure this week instead of the end of October.
Blue-green algae can be harmful and potentially deadly to people and pets.
Quincy Reservoir closed briefly last month for the same reason.
Blue-green algae has turned up at other lakes and recreational water areas around the Denver metro area this summer, including Sloan’s Lake, Prospect Lake, Bear Creek Pond and Windsor Lake.
