There will be no Labor Day activities at Milford Lake. People planning to spend Labor Day at Milford Lake might want to make new arrangements.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced Tuesday that it is canceling all activities at the lake that involve direct contact with water, including swimming, fishing and skiing.
Boating also is prohibited but the lake officials are hopeful that boating could be allowed by Labor Day if tests taken Monday show the amount of algae has dropped.
Several state water attractions have reported algae blooms this summer. The algae can cause severe flu-like symptoms.
