Update July 9, 2020

Kent’s 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.
