Water Quality News

For the Latest CSLAP Water Quality Report on Java Lake passed out at the Annual Meeting July 2, 2016, see the Water Quality page or click on this link:


Blue-Green Algae blooms are an annual concern. This is related to high phosphorous levels caused by the waste-water handling systems from lake residences and agriculture around the lake.

The Division of Water has posted new announcements on its webpage. Go to the Division of Water webpage (www.dec.ny.gov/about/661.html) to read the latest information.

Blue-Green Algae Bloom Notices

  • New information about lakes with blue-green algae bloom notices are posted on DEC's Blue-Green Algal Bloom Notices webpage.
      • Because waterbodies may have blue-green algae blooms that have not been reported to DEC, if you see it, we recommend avoiding contact with floating rafts, scum and discolored water. If you see it, avoid it and report it!
  • What does the archive report tell you: The archived notices web page is a valuable resource when planning water recreation activities. The archived notices web page is updated weekly during the notification season (June through October) with the waterbodies that no longer have evidence of a bloom. The waterbody name, county, last known status date and the bloom status are listed in the table. Because bloom conditions can change frequently some waterbodies may be listed multiple times. At the end of the notification season, the information on the archive web page is summarized in a document and posted on the web page.
  • Report a suspected bloom: If you suspect you have seen a blue-green algae bloom, or you, your family or pet has been in contact with a blue-green algae bloom, please follow the instructions for reporting a bloom to DEC.
