Generally safe Few if any potentially toxic blue-green algae were present when we sampled or made our observations. These areas should be safe for recreational uses.


Status based on cell density evaluation.

No toxin analysis conducted.


Monitoring Type:

Quantitative Monitoring System

(Tiered Alert)


Observations and samples are collected once each week and summarized for this site each Thursday/Friday.

Blue-green algae blooms can appear or disappear very rapidly so conditions around the lake are likely to change

over the course of the week. To check on the current status of your favorite beach or swimming area, contact

whoever is responsible for maintaining the beach. This may be the town, Vermont State Parks, or a private association.
