Public Health lifts danger advisories at Lacamas, Round lakes after water quality improves

Published Date

Clark County Public Health has lifted the danger advisories at Lacamas and Round lakes in Camas. Water samples collected from both lakes show water quality has improved over the last two weeks and toxin levels are no longer elevated. Public Health removed the danger advisory at Vancouver Lake last week.

While harmful algal blooms have recently dissipated, Public Health encourages people who are recreating in local lakes to watch for floating scum and avoid direct contact with water in those areas. Harmful algal blooms can return if conditions change.

The public can report algal blooms on the Public Health website. Information about lake advisories is available on the public beach website.
