Low alert - Small amounts of blue-green algae were observed during our visit.   This area is open for recreation, but caution is advised in any location where dense accumulations or scums are apparent.


No toxin testing was conducted.


Monitoring Type:

Visual Monitoring System


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.
