The Florida Department of Environmental Protection took water samples on December 20, 2022, and detected the presence of toxins from a recent algal bloom that they deemed as potentially unsafe.

As a health precaution, the City of Orlando has issued a Lake Alert for Lake Pineloch and is advising that all residents cease any and all water contact activities, including irrigation, from the lake until further notice.

The City will post updates via the Lake Alert system and at as they are made available.
