No Swimming at Schenectady County Lakes Due to Algal Blooms

No Swimming

Harmful algal blooms have been found in two popular Schenectady County swimming spots. 

Duanesburg leaders are now telling people not to drink or have contact with discolored water in Duane Lake and Mariaville Lake. 

Exposure to certain types of algae can lead to issues like nausea, eye irritation and breathing problems. 

So far, no illnesses related to the Duanesburg blooms have been reported.
