Portions Of Lake Utah Closed After Toxic Algae Found

Provo, Utah – Portions of Lake Utah have been closed after the discovery of blooms of toxic algae.

On September 19th, 2018, The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) took samples from Utah Lake.

Public records, collected by the DWQ, reveal, “Anatoxin-a levels exceeded recreation health-based thresholds for a Warning Advisory at two sample sites.”

“Three sites exceeded recreation health-based levels for a Warning Advisory for microcystins, including microcystin levels of >500 micrograms per liter (µg/L) near Bird Island after 100x dilution and >5 µg/L near Pelican Point.”

The Division of Water Quality found large blooms of the algae at Lincoln Marina, Linden Marina, Bird Island Bouy, and one mile east of Pelican Point.

As of September 26th, 2018 Linden Marina, and Lincoln Marina remain closed.

The lake had previously been the subject of a PCB removal effort in which local fisherman were hired to catch the PCB tainted fish and remove them from the poisoned waters.

    We barely scratched the surface with our campaign.

    Take down this website or we will go full force.

    We own just about every brand or previous website you had in the past. We will own page 1 and page 2 of the time we are done.

    Now is chance to walk away and end this. Oil and Gas will always win in the long run. Give up while you still have a little pride left.

    We dont care about the environment what makes you think we care about you?
