Blue Green Algae

Blue Green Algae was found near Casey's Cove Marina on Friday, September 14. Attached is a fact sheet to provide you with information. A couple of important points include washing any area of human skin exposure to the algae with plenty of soap and water. And keep your pets out of the water. If a pet has been exposed, try to wash the algae off as best you can. You may want to contact your Veterinarian for more information. Read a Blue Green Algae Fact Sheet

Hemorrhagic Disease

A deer was spotted jumping into the lake on the second basin in early July 2018. The animal died soon after and we learned it may have been afflicted with a disease commonly called "blue tongue". According to Lance Tresenriter, DNR Wildlife Biologist for this area, deer can be tested for the disease, but only within 24 hours of the animal's death. Lance's phone number is 260 367 2186.
