Algae bloom closes Bath Lake at height of swimming season

MEDICINE PARK — Bath Lake, one of the most popular swimming destinations in Southwest Oklahoma, remains closed after a naturally-occurring blue-green algae bloom began Saturday morning in the kids swimming area.

Mayor Jennifer Ellis made the announcement Saturday on the town’s official government Facebook page and monitors — normally watching for danger while families have fun splashing in the water — are now posted at the swimming area to ensure no one gets in the water.
