The City of Orlando has issued a Lake Alert for the Western lobe of Lake Ivanhoe due to a large amount of dead fish being found in that section of the lake.
The Western lobe of Lake Ivanhoe is bordered by Ivanhoe Boulevard, Shady Lane, and Poinsettia Avenue. The fish kill is currently confined to the western lobe only and is being monitored by the City. An additional lake alert will be issued if needed.
According to a press release issued by the City earlier in the week, the cause of the fish kill is still uncertain and City Stormwater personnel are removing dead fish from water and conducting additional water quality tests. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is helping to investigate the possible causes.
Residents are asked to avoid using that section of the lake until it has been cleared by the City.
