A note from Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment
(OEHHA) Lake Evans (Fairmount Park).
The interim advisory recommends that people should not consume catfish from the lake.
This advisory is being issued as part of ongoing efforts by the state to measure chemicals in California fish. OEHHA plans to develop a full advisory for Lake Evans when testing for other species of fish has been completed. Although other species of fish collected from Lake Evans that were analyzed for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) to date did not show elevated levels, not all species have been tested.
