The Lake Water Quality Committee has begun monitoring the lake water conditions and algae activity. This past week, we did observe algae growth starting. We will continue to monitor and respond accordingly.
Please take time to read the signs posted at the beach, marina, and the dam. These signs provide information on what to look for when using the lake water.
Not all algae are bad. However, there are types of algae that produce toxins that can be harmful when at a certain limit. Blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) can produce a toxin called Microcystin. This is the toxin we test for when we send water samples into the lab.
If you are in doubt about the water conditions that you see, it is advised that you stay out.
The Lake Water Committee will do our best to keep you up to date on conditions. We will share the Microcystin test results when they are taken.
