FREDERICK, Colo. — Officials are prohibiting activities at Milavec Lake after finding "suspicious algae" in the water Monday.

The Public Works Department immediately contacted a company to address the algae concerns.

All activities related to water contact, including fishing, boating, wading and animals in or near the water, are prohibited.

Signs will be posted at the lake to notify visitors of the algae and the activities that are prohibited.

On Tuesday, the Town of Frederick confirmed it was blue-green algae.

This comes after Sloan’s Lake recently tested positive for potentially deadly blue-green algae earlier this month.
