Water Quality Alerts


The results are in: Water samples taken Tuesday at Chippewa Lake revealed the presence of toxins from Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs). However, the levels were low. Still, the park district was proactive in treating the lake Wednesday with a copper sulfate-based product. We’ll continue to monitor water quality throughout the boating season. We hope visitors to all of our parks continue to enjoy a fun, safe holiday weekend.


During boating season, the park district monitors Chippewa Lake for harmful algal blooms using satellite data provided by the EPA, conducts visual inspections of the water, and tests the lake with a handheld instrument to detect algae.

On Tuesday, July 2, the park district detected some areas on Chippewa Lake experiencing algal blooms. Out of an abundance of caution, the park district applied a copper-based, U.S. EPA-approved product today (Wednesday, July 3) to combat the suspected harmful algal bloom.

Boating and lake activities will be maintained, but lake users are advised to avoid direct contact with the water in areas that have the appearance of pea soup or spilled paint. Also, given the wind conditions, we recommend avoiding village beaches today (Wednesday, July 3).

Water samples were collected on Tuesday, July 2 and taken to a lab to determine whether toxins are present. However, due to the Fourth of July holiday, lab results won’t be available before the holiday.
