ANTHONY, Kan. (AP) — There’s good news and bad news for the Anthony City Lake.

The good news — after two years of drought, recent rains have filled the lake again. The bad news — the lake smells. And weeds that grew while the lake was dry are raising concerns about safety for swimmers and boat propellers.

KWCH-TV reports ( ) the city is asking people not to have any contact with the lake water until the tests determine what is causing the foul odor.

City administrator Amber Kummer says the smell could be caused by decaying vegetation, or by bacteria.
