Blue-Gree Algae Results for Lake Lawrence

Dear Lawrence Lake Residents and Users,


A sample was collected on July 19th. The results of the test for Microcystin were 0.5 ug/L (parts per billion), which is below the recreational health advisory limit of 6 ug/L.

The test results for Anatoxin-a were less than the Method Detection limit which is below the recreational health advisory limit of 1 ug/L.

                No advisory is posted at this time


We are asking residents to call if you see algae scum on the shoreline. If you can collect a sample, please use a clean glass jar. Label and refrigerate the sample and contact our office for pickup or delivery directions.

Please pass this information on to your neighbors.  More information about blue-green algae can be found on our website.
