Has the algae been documented in creeks with running water or just in lakes?

This is most likely the result of upslope Ag. operations and the over application of fertilizers. The Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau will be glad to help by counseling Dicky Pisshoat and their other members that farm near Pinto Lake about the overuse of fertilizers, pesticides, water,and plastic .
