Recent lab results from a follow-up sample collected on Lake Mann near the Gilbert McQueen boat ramp indicate the continued presence of trace amounts of algae toxins in the water column.

As a result, Lake Mann will continue to be closely monitored by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) staff.

Please continue to refrain from irrigating or recreating on the lake, including swimming, fishing, and boating until further notice.
