Warnings Issued for some Kansas Lakes


Public health warnings have been issued for five Kansas lakes because of dangerous levels of toxic blue-green algae. The warnings from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment prohibit swimming, wading, skiing or other direct contact with the water. Lakes now under warnings include Hiawatha City Lake and Mission Lake, both in Brown County; Lake Warnock in Atchison County; Logan City Lake in Phillips County; and Memorial Park Lake in Barton County. The advisories allow boating and fishing but strongly discourage direct water contact.
