ARKANSAS CITY, Kansas — Veterans Memorial Lake, located at 1401 S. Sixth St. in Arkansas City, has been closed temporarily to the public while state authorities investigate the water quality of the lake.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is conducting testing and looking into the matter. While it is possible that an algae bloom has developed, that has not been officially determined at this time.

This closure is just a precautionary measure. Arkansas City will provide an update once KDHE has made its determination.

Until then, the lake is closed to boating and fishing activities. The walking trail remains open to the public, however.
