TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) About a dozen Kansas lakes currently have harmful blue-green algae blooms.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says warnings are in place about algae blooms at Harvey County East Lake, Harvey County West Park Lake, Logan City Lake, Great Bend’s Memorial/Veterans Lake, Johnson County’s South Lake Park and McPherson County State Fishing Lake.
The state lifted warnings and advisories for Milford Reservoir, Lake Scott State Park and Marion Reservoir.
The warnings mean the lakes contain high levels of the algae and contact with the water is prohibited. Advisories mean direct contact with the water is discouraged.
Lakes currently under advisory status are Atchison County Park Lake, Brown County State Fishing Lake, Centralia Lake, Chisholm Creek Park Lake North, Deanna Rose Farmstead pond and Riggs Park Lake.
