Greener BeeGreen TipsGreen algae in Fort Lauderdale canals will prompt water tests

Thick green algae has turned up in canals in the Las Olas Isles area of Fort Lauderdale, generating concern among residents and prompting the city to promise tests.

City officials on Friday said the algae blooms were likely caused by rain or pollen. But they said testing would not be possible until Tuesday.

Behind her house on Southwest Ninth Street, Liana Silsby watched the canal turn bright green over the past week.

Dead animals are in the water, she said, including a fish, a rat, a frog and an iguana. She was concerned about the duckling families that use the waterways.
