Lake Needwood in Rockville is a picturesque and popular recreation spot. Unfortunately, it now comes with a health alert. Officials say that weeks of searing heat encouraged algae in the lake to bloom excessively, producing a toxin called microcystin.
Park officials in Montgomery County are keeping close watch on Lake Needwood after the water tested positive for toxic algae. It can cause severe liver damage if ingested.
