Harmful Algae Update

We are beginning to receive reports of blue green algae concentrations on the lake.  We will be out in the field to assess the situation today and will provide an update later in the day. 


Remember: Look for visual indicators of blue green algae.  If you see anything suspicious, avoid it.  Remember that dogs are also susceptible to blue green algae and should not enter the water in suspicious bloom areas.


If you see any algae concentrations, please send  photos and a description  to HABS@canandaigualakeassoc.org.
