The results were optimistic, showing no traces of the virus in the county, and no major concentrations of the algae in the Lake. The Department conducted tests on 168 pools for the presence of mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus. said Department Director Amanda Ortez. All 168 samples came mack negative for the presence of the virus. Ortez said mosquito counts were low for this time of the year, but the Department would continue to observe the situation for changes. The highest populations were reported at the Precinct 4 barn in Gordonville, Paw Paw Creek Water Treatment Plant in Denison and on Elm Street in Whitesboro. In a separate release, the Department reported that they have found no traces of anatoxin-a in any of the eight samples. The Department did, however, detect traces of microcrystin, cylindrospermopsin and saxitoxin, in several samples. Ortez said that the concentration of the toxins did not pose a health risk. The amount of BGA toxins in the lake water remains substantially below amounts thought to cause injury to people or pets, if the water is swallowed, said Ortega. The Department will continue conducting tests throughout the season, Ortez said.
