|Although the official HAB monitoring program has come to a close, there are still eyes on the lake between CLWA volunteers and paid watershed staff. There were 6 blooms reported last week – 2 of them as recent as yesterday (10/6). The potential for blooms is still there, so continue using your own visual assessment to look for signs of surface streaking of algae, scums, or green/discolored water. These areas should be avoided.
We hope you have found value in these weekly updates. We plan to send a survey in the coming weeks to see what additional types of information will be helpful to you, our members, as we plan for next season.
As always, thanks for your support and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to HABs@canandaigualakeassoc.org.
