Lincoln Marina reopens, but warning advisory for harmful algae remains in effect
UTAH LAKE — Lincoln Marina at Utah Lake has reopened after two weeks of tests showing reduced levels of cyanobacteria, but a Warning Advisory remains in effect for the marina due to a bloom of harmful algae.
The marina was closed in late June due to concerns about a harmful algal bloom.
Thursday the Utah County Health Department reopened the marina, saying two consecutive weeks of testing have shown cyanobacteria concentrations that are below the threshold for a Danger Advisory.
However, Lincoln Marina continues to exceed the recreation health-based threshold for primary contact with water and is under a Warning Advisory, which indicates a “moderate relative probability of acute health risk”.
The DEQ advises the following regarding the marina:
- Do not swim or water ski
- Do not ingest the water
- Keep pets and livestock away
- Clean fish well and discard guts
- Avoid areas of scum when boating
