Algae Forces Reservoir Closure

KSAL StaffJune 4, 2017

A central Kansas reservoir is indefinitely closed because of high levels of potentially harmful blue-green algae.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have announced the closure as of Thursday of the Marion Reservoir.

That does not include Marion County Lake.

Officials say people, pets and livestock should not drink the water and should avoid swimming, wading or skiing.
There is a restriction on all recreational and camping sites within 100 feet of the water at the reservoir.
