Water advisory put in place for another Morton County lake

Your News Leader has learned another lake has been put on a water advisory because of Blue-Green Algae.

Scientists with the Department of Environmental Quality say Sweet Briar Lake in Morton County is under advisory.

Harmon Lake was put under the same advisory earlier this month.

Scientist say accidentally ingesting water can cause vomiting and diarrhea.

Morton County officials say you can still go down to the lakes but recommend keeping children and animals out so they don’t accidentally consume water.
