ARDMORE OK--Oklahomans have a new way of checking local lake and river conditions before hitting the water.
A new website developed by The Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department allows people to check the water quality of over 100 lakes in Oklahoma.
The website was created in May after legislation was signed by Governor Mary Fallin in response to the outbreaks of toxic blue-green algae in Oklahoma waters.
It posts information about which lakes have confirmed blue-green algae present along with tips on water safety.
