Marion Reservoir downgraded from warning to advisory

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment on Friday downgraded the Marion Reservoir to an blue-green algae advisory, meaning fishing and boating once again are allowed.

The advisory means algae are still present in the water but at non-toxic levels.

Lake goers are still advised not to have direct or extended contact with the water and avoid areas with visible algae accumulation.

However, beaches which had been closed since June 14, now are reopened.
