Blue-Green Algae Continues To Plague Kansas Lakes

KSCB News - July 27, 2012 12:57 pm

Health officials say five Kansas lakes continue to have high levels of harmful blue-green algae. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has warnings about algae blooms at Chisholm Creek North Lake in Sedgwick County, Harvey County East Lake, Logan City Lake in Phillips County, Memorial/Veterans Lake in Barton County and South Lake Park in Johnson County. The warnings mean the lakes contain high levels of the algae and contact with the water is prohibited. Two new lakes, Deanna Rose Farmstead in Johnson County and Scott State Park in Scott County, have been added to the lower level advisory status for blue-green algae, which means direct contact with the water is discouraged for people, pets and livestock. Warnings or advisories were lifted this week for Herington Reservoir and Lovewell Reservoir.
