BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - As of Tuesday, almost all Burlington’s beaches -- including North Beach -- are back open after being closed for cyanobacteria.

But the Parks and Recreation Department says it’s still not safe to swim at Leddy Beach.

Blue-green algae blooms can make people and pets sick.

It has been a recurring problem at Burlington beaches in recent years.
