Algae Advisory Lifted for Lost Creek Lake
The voluntary advisory against water contact at Lost Creek Lake was lifted Thursday, over four months after a blue-green algae bloom triggered health concerns at Jackson County’s largest water body.
Tests on water sampled January 16th showed no cells of blue-green algae. Samples taken the next day showed no detectable levels of toxins that can be present during and after a bloom.
After the requisite week wait, the lake finally received its first clean bill of health since the bloom triggered the advisory on September 18th.
