Reports of dogs dying after drinking water at Lake Bracciano

Environmentalists call for investigation into suspected toxic algae in lake north of Rome.

Several dogs have reportedly died in recent days after drinking water at Lago Bracciano, a lake north of Rome, according to a press release by the Lazio branch of Ecoitaliasolidale.
The environmental group has appealed to the lake's authorities to investigate residents' claims that their dogs were poisoned as a result of the toxic algae cyanobacteria, alleged to be present in the water.
Lake Bracciano, an important source of potable water for Rome, was central to a dispute over water rationing between the capital and the Lazio region during the summer drought in 2017.
