On tonight’s edition of “The Impact,” host Anita Kissee looks at the threat of toxic algae blooms in Washington’s lakes and rivers.
State officials believe the algae is worse this year because of the summer drought. Toxic algae can make people sick — especially children and the elderly — and pets can die after drinking water with a toxic bloom.
The show also details the future of Washington’s prepaid college tuition program, known as GET, and what families need to know about the credits they’ve already purchased.
