Three Kansas Lakes Flagged For Toxic Algae

KSAL StaffMay 23, 2014

Kansas health officials are warning people to stay out of one lake and avoid direct contact with the water in two others because of high levels of toxic blue-green algae.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment on Thursday issued a toxic algae warning for Memorial Park Lake in Barton County. The agency says humans, pets and livestock should not enter the lake or drink water from it.

Fish caught from the lake should be cleaned and rinsed with clean water, and only the fillet should be eaten.

The agency also posted toxic algae advisories for Lake Warnock in Atchison County, and Logan City Lake in Phillips County. Boating and fishing are allowed, but direct contact with the water is discouraged for people and animals.
