Strange green foam emerged from a sewer grate in Bluffdale, Utah, on July 21, 2016.

Is this mysterious green substance linked to the toxic algae bloom that has shut down the nearby Utah Lake? Officials say no!

The weird incident occurred north of Utah Lake, which has been shut down last week because of a large algal bloom.

Of course, officials say there’s a very small chance the foam contained algae.

According to them, the green slimy product was likely the product of moss prevention measures. 🙂

The health department assured the public that there were no health risks from the foam.

The official explanation:

I would however suggest residents to take some precautions until experts officially declare the water algae-free.

Bluffdale is about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City. So let’s hope these algae will not propagate rapidly.
