Blue-Green Algae Advisory for Clear Lake

We received this communication from the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Environmental Health Division today.

September 19, 2017
Dear Clear Lake Residents and Users,

We have received results from the September 14th sample that was collected from Clear Lake. The sample contained the algae toxin microcystin present at a concentration over the recreational health advisory limit of 6 ug/L (parts per billion). The sample result was 6.3 ug/L.

The toxic algae advisory for Clear Lake will remain in place until further notice. Sampling of the Lake will be done weekly until the toxin level is below 6 ug/L for two weeks in a row.

Please avoid contact with the lake water, especially areas with visible algae or algae scum on the surface. Keep pets and children out of the water. When fishing, it is safest to catch-and-release any fish caught during a toxic algae bloom.

Please pass this information on to your neighbors. More information about blue-green algae can be found on our website.

When you call the emergency number posted at the gates, the answering service relays your call to whomever is on call.  Right now our committee consists of three volunteers, however two of them are extremely busy with day jobs.  We are looking for volunteers who are available to assist when emergencies come up like a broken gate, water leaks, and other minor issues that need immediate response.  

The Emergency Services Committee will also begin to address responses to Emergencies and provide recommendations to the Board in respect to security, disaster preparedness, and continuity of Operations.  

Tom Jones is the Committee Lead and Laura Drybread is the Board of Director’s liaison.  Would you like to serve on this special committee?  All volunteers must have a background check run.  All residents may serve on the committee.  If you are interested please email LDrybread@clearwood.org.  An early evening meeting will be planned in the very near future so Watch for news here!
