06. July 2018 · Comments Off on HABs Health Advisory Cancelled · Categories: General Information, Water quality

Effective Friday, July 6, 2018, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has lifted the Health Advisory for Harmful Algal Blooms on Kinderhook Lake that was issued on June 29, 2018.

DEC staff accompanied a member of our water quality committee today on a site visit around the lake and saw no evidence of any algal blooms currently on the lake. As such, the advisory has been lifted and the advisory signs around the lake will be down-posted tomorrow morning.

To be clear, the lake was NEVER closed and despite news reported on TV and in some of our local papers, the advisory was only to be on the lookout for HABs and to avoid the blooms, if spotted.
