Advisory Issued For Mississinewa Lake Due To Blue-Green Algae
Monday Jun 23, 2014 1:06pm

By: Jim Measel

(MISSISSINEWA LAKE) - The Indiana D.N.R. says Mississinewa Lake is under an advisory for blue-green algae which means that swimming and boating is still permitted but visitors should avoid direct contact with algae. Visitors should avoid drinking the water and take a shower after they swim. The state also recommends to keep pets out of the water and keep them from drinking the water. They should also bathe after swimming.

Mississinewa is currently the only lake in the state under any form of algae alert. An advisory is the lowest alert level.

The D.N.R. says blue-green algae blooms are a seasonal occurrence in some Indiana waters, fueled by heat, sunlight and fertilizer runoff from lawns and farms.

IDEM tests 14 beaches at 12 Indiana lakes on a monthly basis for blue-green algae during the summer.

Because Mississinewa Lake is under an advisory, the D.N.R. will be conducting bi-weekly tests until the algae levels drop. The next test is June 30th.
