Chippewa Lake Water Quality Warning

Children, pregnant or nursing women, individuals with certain medical conditions, and pets should avoid water contact at Chippewa Lake due to an algal bloom. Testing indicates toxin levels of 10.5 parts per billion, which is above the Ohio Department of Health threshold of 6 ppb recommended for posting a public health advisory. The advisory remains in effect until two consecutive tests taken at least a week apart show levels have fallen below the 6 ppb threshold. Should toxin levels exceed 20 ppb, the lake will be closed.
