Algae in Fort Gibson Lake

Chouteau, OK – The U-S Army Corp of Engineers routinely tests the waters in all of its Oklahoma Lakes.

The Corp has confirmed algae now in Fort Gibson Lake at the Chouteau Bend Recreation Area, Corp spokesman Ross Adkins, however, says they don't know yet if it the blue green algae.

BGA was confirmed in Grand Lake last week. That prompted warnings to avoid contact with the water. Adkins hopes to have results on Fort Gibson by tomorrow.
