Water testing of a sample from the shoreline along Island Drive near the Clearlake Oaks county boat launch has detected levels of a cyanotoxin considered unsafe for recreation. The sample was collected on August 29 and the elevated level on a screening test led to further laboratory analysis demonstrating 46 micrograms per liter of microcystin. The level exceeds the “danger” trigger of 20 micrograms per liter established in statewide guidelines for recreational water safety.
Clear Lake is suffering the effects of a second fish kill, this time off the shores of Lakeport. This is most likely the consequence of nutrients, cyanobacteria and warm water temperatures adversely affecting water quality, primarily dissolved oxygen.

Warm water fish such as those living in Clear Lake need to have about 5 parts per million (ppm) dissolved oxygen to thrive.
