Two bathing beaches along Cayuga Lake have been closed due to the presence of harmful algal blooms, according to the Cayuga County Health Department.
The beaches at Wells College dock in the village of Aurora and Frontenac Park in the village of Union Springs are closed. The Health Department monitors the water quality at public beaches routinely and closes swimming areas when a potential hazard is identified. When the blooms are no longer present, water samples for the swimming areas will be collected and sent for analysis.
The public will be informed when the beaches can re-open.
