The 1st Harmful Algal Bloom in the Finger Lakes this year has been confirmed on Honeoye Lake.
The state Department of Environmental Conservation confirms a small, localized bloom, marking the 2nd year in a row that Honeoye Lake has had the region’s initial bloom.
The DEC reminds everyone that people, pets, and livestock should avoid contact with blue-green algae, which can cause nausea, vomiting, and skin irritation.
Anyone with any of those symptoms should report them to your local health department.
