2/22 UPDATE: The Lake Alert for Turkey Lake has been lifted. Please resume all normal water activities associated with the lake.

Orlando’s Streets and Stormwater Division has issued a Lake Alert for Turkey Lake due to possible elevated E. coli counts.

City Water reclamation staff were called out to a sanitary overflow from a private sanitary sewer system on Monday, February 15. An estimated 2,450 gallons of raw sewage was spilled and warning signs have been placed along the waterfront warning against water contact activities until further notice.

City staff will monitor the lake until they know it is safe for activities to resume.
