Lake Test Results | Update

Contributed by Mike Hanson, Community Manager
We have received updated test results.  The good news is that the open water, where the algae is more dispersed, has returned to normal/safe levels.  However, areas where the algae are concentrated continue have extremely high levels of microsytin.  These areas are most likely in the coves or in and around the docks.
For these areas, we recommend the following:
•No swimming or contact with the water in the shallow areas or where the algae is dense
•Keep small children (under 40 lbs.) and dogs out of the water, and
•Do not eat fish caught in the lake.
The lake will not be closed.  Boating, water skiing, and fishing should not be a problem, but caution should be exercised.We have informed Lake Savers of the microsystin situation and the latest measurement of the phosphorus levels in the water.  They will be here next week to treat the lake, and we will have the water tested again after the treatment.
