MAUMEE, Ohio — The Maumee Bay State Park no-swim advisory issued in July has been dropped. 

The Ohio Department of Health issued an "elevated recreational public health advisory" back in July due to high levels of algal toxins that were detected in the water

The agency asked people to avoid all contact with the water. 

This had been the earliest in the year a public health advisory has been issued at Maumee Bay State Park. It was also only the second time the department had issued the Elevated Recreational Public Health Advisory for Lake Erie.  

The last time the agency did that was in 2017 from Aug. 31-Sept. 25.

The warning was issued for Lake Erie, not the in-land water.
