Today’s Weather Trivia:
2 July 2007: Weather may have promoted blue-green algae growth in 25 Quebec lakes, including Lake Champlain. Phosphate pollution had been blamed, but heavy rain eroded pesticide-laden topsoil before it streamed into the lakes; arid conditions then heightened lake evaporation, causing higher phosphate levels and more cyanobacteria growth. These toxins can cause vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and headaches. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
