Chalk Ridge Falls at Stillhouse Hollow Lake

Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials at Stillhouse Hollow Lake announced today plans to re-open Chalk Ridge Falls Park on Friday October 22.

Stillhouse Hollow Lake personnel partnered with local agencies to conduct water sampling and testing for anatoxins after the park was closed in late August. The water sample results indicate that the presence of detectable levels of anatoxins are well below the World Health Organization thresholds for recreational use.

While the results at Chalk Ridge Falls Park are below WHO recreational use thresholds, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recommends that people and pets stay out of water that has visible colored surface films, scum layers and/or algae mats.  It is also best to avoid stagnant areas where there’s little to no water movement and where the water has a bad odor. Also, pets should be controlled on a six feet or shorter leash and should not be allowed to enter water with the above-described conditions or be allowed to ingest such waters.
