AUSTIN, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - Pet owners are being reminded to not allow their dogs to swim anywhere near Lady Bird Lake, Barton Creek, or Red Bud Isle.
In addition to swimming, dogs should not be allowed to drink the water in these locations.
Samples were taken on Monday, August 12, 2019, at Auditorium Shores, at Red Bud Isle and at Barton Creek. Samples at Barton Creek were taken just below the pedestrian bridge over Barton Creek on the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail.
All the samples contained greater amounts of neurotoxins than found the previous week.
