Update August 19, 2020
Panguitch Lake was sampled 8/12/2020 and had a concentration (14K cells/ml) of toxigenic cyanobacteria (Microcystis) which is below the recommended Warning advisory level (100K cells/ml). However, because elevated levels of toxigenic cyanobacteria have been quantified, we are highlighting this result as a Health Watch.
A Health Watch is not a formal recreational advisory, but rather an indicator that a bloom may exist or become more severe. Indicators can include visual reports, but in this case observations were quantified in a laboratory. Toxin results are pending.
