County lifts algae advisory at Lacamas Lake

Clark County Public Health has lifted its advisory at Lacamas Lake. The bloom of cyanobacteria at the lake dissipated in late July and, as of Aug. 4, was no longer present.

The county has removed its warning signs posted at the lake, but warned that harmful algal blooms may return as conditions change.

Public Health encourages people swimming and recreating in the lake to watch for floating scum and avoid direct contact with water in those areas.

The public can report algal blooms on the Public Health website at clark.wa.gov/public-health/report-health-concern. Information about swim beach monitoring and advisories are available on the Public Health public beach website at clark.wa.gov/public-health/public-beaches.
