Honeoye Valley Association

In many years Honeoye Lake experiences a problematic blue-green algae (cynobacteria) bloom of 1-8+
weeks, which severely affects water clarity, is aesthetically unpleasing, and can be toxic. This is a
common occurrence in many shallow lakes in the northeast and is also locally common in Sodus Bay.

 Dr Bruce Gilman's report on the 2010 Algae Bloom

As a result of the severe algae bloom during the summer of 2010 the Town of Richmond organized a community informational meeting.  Dr. Steve Souza a consultant from Princeton Hydro, Dr. Bruce Gilman, and Jack Starke gave presentations on the subject.
