Algae alerts lifted for lake, reservoir
Kansas Department of Health and Environment canceled both a blue-green algae warning for Marion County Lake and less-serious watch for Marion Reservoir on Thursday.
Swimmers, boaters, and anglers can engage in those activities without having to take precautions that earlier warnings and watches imposed.
The reservoir had been under either a watch or warning since May.
Blue-green algae conditions are re-evaluated each Thursday afternoon by KDHE.
