Public health advisory continues for local lake
08/09/2019

(KNZA)--A public health advisory continues for a local lake.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, in a news release Thursday, said the Hiawatha City Lake remains under “ watch”  status due to the presence of blue-green algae.

The lake is among eight in the state under " watch" status.

People are encouraged to avoid areas of algae accumulation, and keep pets  away from the water.

KDHE says fish should be cleaned well with potable water and only the fillet portion consumed.

14 lakes in the state are currently under " warning" status due to blue-green algae.  None of those are in the local area.
