KDHE site has info on harmful algae blooms

  • Published Monday, Oct. 10, 2011, at 12:09 a.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: Warnings and advisories from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment about harmful algae blooms at Kansas lakes.

Why you'd want them: To protect your health if you plan a trip to the lake. Water in lakes listed in the warnings and advisories may be unsafe for people and animals.

Where you get the records: From KDHE's website, www.kdheks.gov. Click on the "Blue-Green Algae in Kansas" link at the bottom of the homepage. Then click on the "Current Advisories/Warnings" link on the left-hand side of the page.

How much it will cost: The information is free.
