KDHE has established three advisory levels: Watch, Warning, and Hazard. However, the public should be aware that blooms are unpredictable. They can develop rapidly and may move across a water body due to wind or current, so lake visitors must exercise their best judgment.

KDHE does not have the authority to close a lake. KDHE provides recommendations regarding health advisories based on analytical results. Click here to see KDHE's full response plan. To hear current advisories, you may also call the HAB hotline at 785-296-1664.
