The Gronwall's visual BGA Update for Monday September 17th.


Monday morning (9/17), Today the blue-green algae bloom that has been

occurring for the last several weeks appeared to be subsiding. The lake had

only very light visible algae in the water column and no surface scum at all

10 of our monitoring sites. However, a few of our sites still had very

green looking water. If we get clear sunny sky conditions with clam winds

we could see the blue-green algae move back up to the surface later this



We have had confirmed complete water column mixing events on August 22nd

and September 10th providing nutrients to fuel this BGA bloom.


Always use your own visual assessment before making contact with the lake

water at this time of year as the blue-green algae situation can change

daily if not hourly. The DEC will report on their assessment of our

blue-green algae bloom situation for this week late Friday afternoon on

their BGA alert web page.
