ORLANDO – The Florida Department of Health in Orange County has lifted the Health Alert for the presence of blue-green algae in Lake Ivanhoe. This is in response to a site visit and water samples taken from the site.

The public may resume normal activities in and around Lake Ivanhoe. Because of the fluid and organic nature of algal blooms it is possible that bloom conditions could return so the public is advised to watch for and report future algae blooms on Lake Ivanhoe.
