ALGAE ALERT ISSUED FOR WHITEWATER MEMORIAL STATE PARK

(Liberty, IN)--Whitewater Memorial State Park is now included in a blue-green algae alert for the water.  Whitewater joins Brookville Lake after high counts of algae were found in the lake.  Swimming is still permitted, but the DNR suggests that you shower after entering the water and avoid getting it into your mouth.  Two other large area lakes – Lakengren and Acton Lake at Hueston Woods – do not have significant levels of algae.
