Advisory Lifted at Logan City Lake in Phillips County, experts still advise caution

Topeka—Water samples taken by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) at Logan City Lake in Phillips County have concluded that the toxic level of blue-green aglae has subsided for that body of water. Though experts still advise caution, KDHE has lifted the Public Health Advisory there.

“Our testing showed that there are no high areas of concern at the moment,” explained Tom Langer, Director for the Bureau of Environmental Health. “That said, if you see any green material floating in the water, you, and especially your pets, should avoid it.”

This concludes testing for blue-green algae for the year. For more information about blue green algae, visit www.kdheks.gov/algae-illness/index.htm.
