RECREATIONAL USE ADVISORY ISSUED
FOR SARATOGA LAKE
The Wyoming Department of Health has issued a recreational use advisory for Saratoga Lake in Carbon County due to a harmful cyanobacterial bloom (HCB). HCBs are also referred to as harmful algal blooms (HABs) since cyanobacteria are commonly known as blue-green algae. The Department of Health issues advisories to inform the public that there may be health risks for people and animals in areas where HCBs occur. Lakes and reservoirs under a recreational use advisory are not closed since HCBs may only be present in certain areas of the waterbody and conditions can change frequently. The advisory will remain in place until the bloom has fully dissipated.
On August 26, 2019, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department reported a potential cyanobacterial in Saratoga Lake. The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality visited the reservoir on August 28, 2019, and collected water samples along the west shoreline near the southernmost campground. Cyanobacteria densities exceeded the 20,000 cells/ml recreational use threshold identified in Wyoming's HCB Action Plan.
Cyanotoxin results are pending. The most up-to-date information as well as other HCB resources can be found at WyoHCBs.org.
