Update November 2, 2020
The Utah Division of Water Quality’s water recreation season runs from May 1 through October 31. At this time, no further monitoring or sampling for harmful algal blooms or waterborne pathogens at priority water bodies will be conducted until May 2021.
This does not mean that the potential for harmful algal blooms or waterborne pathogens has ceased. Please remain aware while recreating in or near water bodies and for information on how to keep yourself, your family, and your pets safe, please visit:
Update July 9, 2020
Kents Lake is currently under a Health Watch after a recreator observed decaying harmful algal bloom (HAB) material in the water and along the shoreline on June 16, 2020. A Health Watch is not a formal advisory level but rather an indicator that a bloom may exist or become more severe based on available information from the DEQ Division of Water Quality (DWQ) and Department of Health. Indicators can include visual reports. The Southwest Health Department has been notified.
Due to state budget cuts, DWQ will not be able to sample the lake this year.
