Zebra mussels discovered at Kanopolis Reservoir
CLEAN, DRAIN, DRY boats and other equipment before moving from one lake to another

More Kansas lakes receive blue-green algae alerts

Cheney added to Warning list, Advisory lifted at Perry, conditions improve at Milford

July 29, 2011 - TOPEKA — The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is continuing to monitor and test Kansas lakes for the presence of harmful blue-green algae. Blue-green algae are natural, common bacteria in all waters of Kansas. Ordinarily, they are not harmful to humans or aquatic life, but under certain conditions — especially during the heat of the summer — they can multiply rapidly, resulting in a “bloom.” When this happens, blooms may release toxins that are dangerous to fish, pets, and humans. Some algae blooms look like foam or thick slurry. They can be blue, bright green, brown, or red and may look like paint floating on the water. Some blooms may not affect the appearance of the water. At some locations, this summer’s prolonged heat spell may have created better than normal conditions for algae blooms. Read Story
