The State Water Resources Control Board and Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control board say toxic algal blooms have been detected in the water near the shore at Mallard Lagoon, Kidd Cove and on the western side of Stanfield Cutoff in Big Bear Lake. The bloom conditions could change with the flow of surface water and wind, causing it to move or become concentrated in a different area, officials said.  The blooms appear to be bright- to dull-green and sometimes looks like spilled paint and can make people and animals sick.
