An Urgent Health Advisory from Lake County’s Public Health Officer, Gary Pace, MD, MPH.

Effective immediately, people on private water systems whose tap water comes from their own private intake into the lake, in the Oaks Arm and Lower Arm of Clear Lake should not drink the water.  Very high levels of Cyanotoxin have been identified in these areas of the lake, and we are concerned there may be health impacts if private water systems are not effectively filtering out these toxins.  More detailed information will be released tomorrow (Thursday, 9/16).

NOTE: the latest monitoring data, conducted at 15 Clear Lake sites by Big Valley Band of Pomo Indians with assistance from Robinson Rancheria EPA Department, can be found at
