We are getting a lot of questions on if it’s safe to swim or use the lake. You can continue to do so as long as you are vigilant and aware of the water and any changes while you, your children, your guests, your pets are in the water. This new cyanobacteria bloom is not the lake-wide version we had last year that shut the lake down. This type of bloom will usually appear along the shoreline or very close to shore and come and go quickly, often in less than an hour. They are often along the windward shore, and typically earlier in the day. Everyone is responsible for staying vigilant and ensuring their own safety, and reporting any changes to the Rapid Response Team or the Water Quality Chair.
