The swim areas at Indian Pines Park, and Red Jacket Park in Penn Yan are closed until at least Tuesday due to toxic blue green algae.
Public Health is working with the New York State Department of Health regarding the closure of public swim areas at Indian Pines and Red Jacket in the Village of Penn Yan and the Keuka Lake State Park due to blue-green algae. The public swimming areas will remain closed until NYS Department of Health clears the area for swimming.
Some blue-green algae can produce toxins. These pose health risks to people and animals if exposed to large enough quantities. People, pets and livestock should avoid contact with water that has scums on the surface or is discolored. Do not drink untreated surface water.
