Weekly lake monitoring has begun. Data can be seen at: https://hvaweb.org/2019-weekly-Lake-monitoring/


The Gronwall's visual BGA Update for Tuesday September 9th.

  Monday morning (9/9), we observed green algae dots or clumps in the water at about half of our monitoring locations.  This usually is an indication of blue-green algae.  However, the rest of our monitoring locations only had light algae visible in the water column.  No algae surface scum was observed anywhere today.  We also noticed Cladophora in serval near shore areas.  Cladophora is a stringy (Filamentous) type algae that grows on hard surfaces in near shore areas.  Be extra watchful for visible signs of blooms before you or your pets make contact with the lake water.

  Water clarity has decreased ~1 feet over the last week indicating a small increase of algae in the water column.  Water temperature has decreased by 3 F.

  The next two days are forecasted to be in the low 80+ F temperature range.  If we also get a bright sunny sky and calm winds we could see an increase in algae blooms.



  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.  Please regularly check the new DEC HABs alert map for more detailed updates on Honeoye Lake HABs alerts:
