OCAlert logo

January 20, 2023

Orange County and City of Winter Park staff inspected Lake Sue and observed a visible algae bloom in the northern part of the lake. Lake Sue is comprised of homeowners within Orange County, City of Winter Park, and City of Orlando jurisdictional boundaries. In this effort, all entities are advising citizens to refrain from swimming, recreating and irrigating in/ from Lake Sue until further notice. The bloom has been reported to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to schedule sample collection.

When additional information is received on the status of the lake from FDEP’s Algal Bloom Dashboard (floridadep.gov/AlgalBloom), all alerts will be updated. Please encourage your neighbors to register for the City of Orlando Lake Alert at orlando.gov/lakealert, City of Winter Park alerts at cityofwinterpark.org/lakes and Orange County alerts at ocfl.net/alerts so they, too, will obtain important information about Lake Sue directly.
