Be watchful for blue-green algae while enjoying State lakes and ponds

Wichita - If you are going out to enjoy the State's Lakes and ponds, this Holiday weekend, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment wants you to be watchful for blue-green algae, or algae blooms. 

None of the State's Lakes or Ponds have any current algae warnings. 

Harmful algae blooms are unpredictable and can develop rapidly.  If you see scum, a paint-like surface or if the water is bright green, avoid contact and keep pets away.
