Utah Lake's toxic algae affecting Saratoga Springs secondary water, flowing into Jordan River

State officials are reporting that the toxic algae bloom that struck Utah Lake last week has extended north into the Jordan River system. 

Blooms have also reportedly formed in the lower Spanish Fork River, and algae has been detected in lower Little Cottonwood Creek.

The Salt Lake County Health Department reported Sunday that the Jordan River and all county canals are potentially unsafe for people or animals, according to information from the state Department of Environmental Quality.
