Requiring public notification and posting when toxic algae are found in a lake that has public access. Not this defense:
Webster said county officials didn't notify the public or the media about the toxic algae in Mona Lake because that would further stigmatize the beleaguered lake.
"It's difficult for people on Mona Lake to stomach that," Webster said. "It's almost like Mona Lake is being held out as the poster child for poor water quality when, in reality, this is a problem across the state."
