Yesterday, a large number of blooms were identified on Seneca Lake. The Finger Lakes Institute (FLI) at Hobart and William Smith Colleges tested six of a total of 16 bloom samples taken from Seneca Lake on Thursday September 5, 2019. The lab reports that all six samples were above the threshold of 25 micrograms per liter of blue-green chlorophyll. Additional bloom samples are being processed today. This emphasizes the need for taking extreme caution when recreating on the lake. Take special caution with small children and pets.
