Health Advisory at Long Lake

Update: This health advisory has been lifted.

There is currently a health advisory for blue-green algae toxin on Long Lake. 

When there is a toxic algae bloom, people are advised to:
- Avoid recreational contact with the lake.
- Keep pets out of the water.  
- If fishing, catch and release is the safest practice.

The most recent water sample was collected at the city of Lacey’s Long Lake Park. Warning signs are posted at the park and at access points around the lake. The Thurston County Health Department will monitor the lake weekly while the bloom is present. 

There is still a health advisory at Pattison Lake.

If you have questions, contact Cathy Hansen at (360) 867-2645 or Art Starry at 867-2587.
