Harmful Algal Bloom Notifications

New bodies of water with harmful algal blooms have been added today, June 1, to DEC’s Harmful Algal Blooms Notifications webpage.

This week, three waters were added to the notification list. There are currently 11 water bodies with blooms on the list.

Know it. Avoid it. Report it.

Because water bodies may have harmful algal blooms that have not been reported to DEC, we recommend avoiding contact with floating mats, scum and discolored water.

If you suspect you have seen a harmful algal bloom, or you, your family, or pet has been in contact with a harmful algal bloom, please follow the instructions for reporting a bloom to DEC.
