Health advisory for algae at Henrys Lake lifted

Eastern Idaho Public Health and the Department of Environmental Quality has lifted a health advisory for algae at Henrys Lake.

After two consecutive weeks of sampling at common access areas, DEQ confirmed that blue-green algae levels have fallen below concentrations of concern. The public should avoid any isolated areas of algae, which may look like floating white-gray blue paint, and should contact DEQ at (208) 528-2650 to report any areas of concern.

The advisory was originally instated in August this year after the lake test positive for blue-green algae.
