Harmful Algal Bloom Notices – New York State

New information about lakes with harmful algal blooms has been posted today, July 29, on the DEC Harmful Algal Blooms Notifications webpage.

This week, 13 waterbodies in several locations in the state were added to the notification list. There are currently 38 waterbodies with blooms on the notification list.Avoid and report suspected blooms

Because waterbodies may have harmful algal blooms that have not been reported to DEC, we recommend avoiding contact with floating mats, scum and discolored water.

If you suspect you have seen a harmful algal bloom, or you, your family, or pet has been in contact with a harmful algal bloom, please follow the instructions for reporting a bloom to DEC. If you see it, avoid it and report it!
