ALERT – Marion County Lake closed for all but boating and fishing

Due to a blue-green algae bloom, the Marion County Park & Lake is closed until further notice for swimming, water skiing and jet skiing. Boating and fishing are still permissible. Steve Hudson, Park & Lake director, said the water is tested each Monday. When the status of the lake changes, notice will be posted on the Free Press website. Hudson said it likely will take a good rain to make a significant difference in the water quality.
