The appearance of blue-green algae bloom is a significant sign of deterioration of the lake, and we must all do what we can to eliminate the problem. We must start by considerably reducing the sources of phosphorus.
The MMDEP tests the water at regular intervals during the summer and issued “Memos” on the results.
Again this year, MCI has put into place a network of volunteer sentinels who monitor the lake daily, reporting on cyanobacteria blooms, as well as any other issues concerning the quality of the water in the lake. The observations collected are forwarded to the MDDEP, and the municipalities concerned.
We need your help in order to track and record these problems!
