Warning Removed from Chippewa Lake -- Green Flags Now Flying

Water samples taken from Chippewa Lake on August 23 show microcystin toxin levels remain low and have decreased from last week. In addition, the most recent satellite images show an absence of a bloom.  Park police changed the flags to green today. MCPD staff will continue to monitor Chippewa Lake and collect water samples as needed.

Please note: MCPD’s flag warning color system is DIFFERENT from the State of Ohio Harmful Algal Bloom Response Strategy for Recreational Waters, which was recently revised.

Warning Flag System in Place at Chippewa Lake

The warning flag system alerts boaters and swimmers to water conditions at Chippewa Lake due to harmful algal blooms or other safety concerns.
