An algae bloom with the potential to produce harmful toxins has been identified at Hyalite Reservoir, one of Bozeman’s most popular outdoor recreation sites.

The Gallatin City-County Health Department is advising visitors to the reservoir south of Bozeman to be cautious and avoid any algae bloom suspended in water that looks “like pea soup, grass clippings or green latex paint,” according to a Friday news release.
