Health warning continues for local lake
07/19/2019


(KNZA)--A public health warning remains in place for a local lake due to the presence of high levels of toxic blue-green algae.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said Thursday, in a news release, that the Hiawatha City Lake is among seven lakes in the state  under " warning" status.

The Hiawatha lake was first placed on the list July 11.

KDHE says activities such as boating and fishing may be safe. However, direct contact with the water should be avoided.

Fish may be eaten if they are rinsed with clean water. However, you should consume only the fillet portion and discard all other parts.

KDHE will continue to monitor the lake.
