Reservoir under algae warning again

Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced today that Marion Reservoir is once again under a blue-green algae warning. The warning will remain in effect until July 9, when KDHE is expected to update the lake’s status.

During a warning:

  • Lake water is not good to drink for humans, pets, or livestock.
  • Water contact should be avoided.
  • Fish can be eaten as long as they are rinsed with clean water, only the fillet portion is consumed, and all other parts are discarded.
  • Do not allow pets to eat dried algae.
  • If lake water contacts skin, wash with clean water as soon as possible.
  • Avoid areas of visible algae accumulation.
