Toxic Algae In Kansas Lakes

KSAL StaffJuly 21, 2013

Swimming, skiing and other direct water contact is banned at six Kansas lakes because of toxic blue-green algae.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says the lakes are:
Buhler City Lake in Reno County
Colwich City Lake in Sedgwick County
Logan City Lake in Phillips County
Memorial Park Lake in Barton County
Riggs Park Lake in Sedgwick County
South Park Lake in Johnson County

At two other Kansas lakes, direct water contact is discouraged.
Those lakes are:
Marion Reservoir in Marion County
Milford Lake in Dickinson and Geary Counties

The KDHE urges visitors to the six lakes where direct water contact is banned and the two where it’s discouraged to keep their pets from drinking untreated water. Any fish caught in the lakes should be cleaned well.
