Health warning issued for Frederick lake

Visitors to Cunningham Falls State Park are being warned by the Frederick County Health Department that swimming, wading or splashing at Hunting Creek Lake could make them sick.

Heavy rainfall and storm-water runoff have affected the lake's water quality, according to the health department. Park patrons are urged to stay out of the water if they have cuts or open skin wounds, a compromised immune system or young children. If anyone does go in the water, officials recommend scrubbing with anti-bacterial soaps immediately upon getting out of the water.

For updates on the lake's status, people are advised to call the park at 301-271-7574 or follow the park on Twitter @cunninghamfalls
