ALERT: Because of the elevated levels of cyanobacteria, a toxic blue-green algae
recently found at Almaden Lake and Lake Cunningham Parks in San José, both lake areas have been closed to all water activities until further notice by the San José Department of Parks, Recreation & Neighborhood Services. However, the parks themselves remain open.

While the blue-green algae potentially can cause skin irritation and gastrointestinal issues in humans, it can prove fatal for dogs. Pet owners are highly encouraged to keep their pets away from the water areas at these parks. Read the news release: http://ow.ly/qQJM303ZVxr

Leave the fireworks to the professionals! Fireworks are illegal in San Jose, and now higher fines for fireworks-related violations are in effect. The fines are now $500 for a first violation, $700 for a second violation, and $1,000 for a third violation.

Code enforcement officers, park rangers, and some fire officials can issue these administrative fines to anyone who sells, uses, possesses or stores illegal fireworks.

The City of San José fireworks ban applies to all types of fireworks. Illegal fireworks not only include large bottle rockets, roman candles, and firecrackers but also the popular ‘sparklers,’ usually reserved for younger children.

The City Council approved the higher fines on April 12, along with a pilot program that will beef up fireworks enforcement efforts in neighborhoods and parks. The pilot will take place from Friday, July 1, through Tuesday, July 5, when illegal fireworks activity typically increases over the Independence Day holiday weekend.

The public is encouraged to celebrate safely by enjoying fireworks at large public displays that are permitted and run by professional pyrotechnicians.
