Mike Caywood, Chairman Lake & Dam Committee –
As a follow up from the Lake Water Quality Update that was sent out on 10/4, additional samples were taken on 10/14, and the Microcystin testing results have been received. During past tests, we took two samples (well mixed and scum).
On 10/14, three samples were taken in order to provide more information. The results are below.
Near the dam from a well-mixed area: 3.441 ug/L
Random cove, not scummy: 1.293 ug/L
Very heavy scum in cove : >5000.00 ug/L
The overall lake water risk should be considered low. However, scummy areas should be avoided and considered swim at your own risk.
