HANSEN DAM RECREATIONAL LAKE
The larvae causing Swimmer’s Itch may be present in Hansen Dam. In an abundance of caution, the Citywide Aquatic Division suspended all recreational water activities at the Recreation Lake, with the exception of fishing until further notice. Proper notifications and education of preventative measures will be made to the public who wish to utilize the HD Recreation Lake for recreational water activities such as swimming, boating, paddling, etc. in the near future.
Per the Centers for Disease Control, “Swimmer’s itch, also called cercarial dermatitis, appears as a skin rash caused by an allergic reaction to certain microscopic parasites that infect some birds and mammals. These parasites are released from infected snails into fresh and saltwater (such as lakes, ponds, and oceans). While the parasite’s preferred host is the specific bird or mammal, if the parasite comes into contact with a swimmer, it burrows into the skin causing an allergic reaction and rash. Swimmer’s itch is found throughout the world and is more frequent during the summer months.” “Most cases of swimmer itch do not require medical attention.” “Swimmer’s itch is not contagious and cannot be spread from one person to another.”
