5 Kansas Lakes Under Algae Health Warnings

KSAL StaffSeptember 9, 2013

Public health warnings have been issued for five Kansas lakes because of dangerous levels of toxic blue-green algae. Less restrictive advisories have been issued for three other lakes.

The warnings from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment prohibit swimming, wading, skiing or other direct contact with the water.

Lakes now under warnings include Hiawatha City Lake and Mission Lake, both in Brown County; Lake Warnock in Atchison County; Logan City Lake in Phillips County; and Memorial Park Lake in Barton County.

The agency posted advisories for Colwich Memorial Park Lake in Sedgwick County as well as two in Johnson County — Rose’s Lake and South Park Lake.

The advisories allow boating and fishing but strongly discourage direct water contact.
