U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Lift Algae Advisory

Posted:

LAKE TEXOMA -- Earlier in April, the Grayson County Health Department took samples from Lake Texoma.

Those tests indicated that blue-green algae levels have dropped below the World Health Organization's guidelines of 20-thousand cells per milliliter of water.

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers officials reviewed the results including their own past data, and decided on Monday to cancel their "advisory" all together.

These tests were only conducted on the Grayson County side of the lake because of jurisdictional limitations with the Grayson County Health Department.

The Corps of Engineers says because of the recent rainfall and the significant drop in cell counts at the locations tested, the advisory has been lifted for the entire lake.
