The Cayuga County Health Department has reported confirmed Harmful Algal Blooms on Owasco Lake. The public is encouraged to "Know It, Avoid It and Report It."
KNOW IT - The water will appear discolored with a paint-like or filmy appearance or floating scum which should always be avoided as they are potentially harmful.
AVOID IT - Always stay away from blooms in the lake. Never swim, fish, boat, wade or eat fish caught in areas with blooms. During a bloom, private water supplies drawn directly from the lake should not be used fro showering, bathing or washing dishes even if treatment is provided.
REPORT IT - If you think that a bloom may be harmful, report it through the NYSDEC. http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical. If you feel that you or your pets are experiencing symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, irritation of the skin, eyes or respiratory system due to exposure to a harmful bloom please contact your health care provider or veterinarian.
