Vancouver, WA — Clark County Public Health has lifted a health advisory for recreational use of Lacamas Lake after inspections of the water and lab results indicate cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) is no longer a threat to the health of people and pets.

“We are pleased to announce that the lake is again safe for swimming and other recreational uses,” said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County Health Officer. “Conditions could change, however, so we urge people to be observant and avoid any pockets of the lake that might have a scummy texture and a green, bluish, brownish, or reddish-green color.”
