The Utah Department of Environmental Quality just issued another Health Watch for Utah Lake but The Utah Lake Restoration Project wants to make sure this doesn't continue to happen.

The Utah Lake Restoration Project is a plan to provide a comprehensive restoration and improvement of the lake.

Currently, Algal blooms have been observed at sites throughout the lake and this algae may be producing dangerous toxins.

Under a health watch:

  • Do not swim or water ski in areas with visible algae
  • Avoid areas of algae when boating
  • Clean fish well and discard guts
  • Keep animals away
  • Don’t drink the water
