A blue green algae bloom was spotted in the water at Georgia Beach Monday. According to the Vermont Department of Health, both Georgia Beach and Highgate Springs are on high alert for cyanobacteria. The beach at St. Albans Bay Park, which was closed for swimming over the weekend due to the bacteria, is back open to the public as of Monday morning.
