State lifts some algae advisories at some lakes

TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) - State health officials have lifted toxic blue-green algae advisories at some lakes but the problem persists at other lakes.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment on Thursday lifted health advisories at Milford Lake, Marion Reservoir and Winfield City Lake.

The state continues its advisory at Old Herington City Lake in Dickinson County, Cedar Bluff Reservoir in Trego County and Lovewell Reservoir in Jewell County.

Lakes under a warning are Logan City Lake in Phillips County and Veterans Lake in Great Bend.

An advisory means direct contact with the water is discouraged for people, pets and livestock.

A warning means the lakes contain high levels of the algae and contact with the water is prohibited.
