The Veterans Memorial Lake reopened Sept. 13 after all the signs and barricades were removed by Arkansas City employees. The lake was closed by city officials on Aug. 14 due to possible algae in the water. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment gave the all clear in the past week for resumed use, according to a city spokesman.
