Public health warnings have been issued for seven Kansas lakes because of dangerous levels of toxic blue-green algae. Less restrictive advisories have also been issued for two additional lakes.

The warnings from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment prohibit swimming, wading, skiing or other direct contact with the water.
