Those lakes now under a warning status include the Brown County State Fishing Lake in Brown County and Chisholm Creek Park Lake in Sedgwick County. Others are Memorial Park Lake in Barton County and Plainville Township Lake in Rooks County. Also included on the list are the Lovewell Reservoir in Jewell County and the Milford Reservoir in Clay, Dickinson and Geary counties.
