The bloom of cyanobacteria at the lake dissipated and is no longer present
VANCOUVER – Clark County Public Health has lifted its algae advisory at Lacamas Lake. The bloom of cyanobacteria at the lake dissipated and is no longer present.
The warning signs posted at the lake are being removed. Educational signs about harmful algae will remain year-round at Lacamas Lake and other water bodies known to have harmful algal blooms. Public Health encourages people recreating in the lakes to continue to watch for floating scum and avoid direct contact with water in those areas.

Public Health will continue to respond to public reports of algal blooms, which can be submitted on the Public Health website.
