Flag Update & Water Treatment Effective Aug 1, 2023
A lake water treatment is scheduled for today, Tuesday, August 1, 2023, at 9:00 am to treat the initial indicators of blue-green algae in the lake. The water treatment will be done under the guidance of our contracted professional biologists at Aquality Environmental.
Out of an abundance of caution, the SSRA will be temporarily prohibiting access to the water following the treatment.
Due to the water treatment, we are changing our flags to RED 🚩 for the treatment

As indicated in the information about our flag system, which can be found on our website, red flags mean the following: Known increased risk of using the lake. Lake access is PROHIBITED for ALL USERS.
