(Updated at 4:35 p.m.) Reston Association is monitoring the presence of potentially harmful algae at Lake Anne.

According to a statement released yesterday (Wednesday), the blue-green algae was spotted in some parts of the lake.

There are currently no restrictions on boating and fishing, but it’s best to avoid contact with the lake water, RA wrote in a statement.

RA Chief Operating Officer Peter Lusk told FFXnow that the bloom is limited to the east end of the lake next to Wiehle Avenue.

“With cooler weather predicted the forecast, we are hoping to see this small growth resolve itself soon. Should the extent of the bloom change, or if the bloom last longer than one week,  testing will be performed to ensure the lake is safe for all users,” Lusk wrote in a statement.
