June 9, 2021 – City of Midland Parks and Recreation will briefly close the beach at Kiwassee Lake in Stratford Woods Park on Thursday, June 10 to proactively treat the lake for algal blooms.
If uncontrolled, algal blooms can lead to fish die-off, impact water quality, and even make people and animals sick if they ingest or touch affected water.
For safety reasons, people and animals should avoid all water contact (swimming, fishing, etc.) for 24 hours while the treatment runs its course. The beach will reopen on Friday, June 11.
For questions and further information, contact the Parks and Recreation Office at 989-837-6930 or email email@example.com.
