The City of Orlando has issued a Lake Alert for all lakes for the duration of Hurricane Matthew and directly afterwards. Due to the storm, there is a high potential for water contamination, sewer overflows, active wildlife and other safety concerns. Take extreme caution around all waterways during this time.
To address citizen concerns related to water quality, the Stormwater Section has developed a public information system, “Lake Alert,” to provide seasonal and localized warnings (and updates) for City of Orlando lakes.
