(KNZA)--A public health advisory has been lifted for a local northeast Kansas lake.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, in conjunction with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, announced Thursday that the Atchison County State Fishing Lake, northwest of Atchison, is no longer on the advisory list due to blue-green algae.

Horton's Mission Lake remains under " watch" status, while the Brown State Fishing Lake, northeast of Robinson, has been downgraded from " warning" to "watch" status.

For lakes under watch status, KDHE says people are encouraged to avoid areas of algae accumulation and keep pets and livestock away from the water. You should clean fish well with potable water and eat the fillet portion only.
