“We continue to perform regular testing of Skaneateles Lake water to determine the impact of any algae blooms on the city’s water supply,” said Syracuse Mayor Stephanie A. Miner. “We work with our partners in other government agencies to test for toxicity in the water. Making sure this information is public and transparent is our priority.”
The city continues to do daily testing for algae cell counts and blooms. The county and state Departments of Health are working to determine the toxicity levels in the water. The city continues to work cooperatively with the county and state Departments of Health and the Department of Environmental Conservation. The city plans to issue daily updates with agency partners.
