Harriman Reservoir Health Warning
We received a report of the start of a cyanobacteria (blue green algae) bloom at Harriman Reservoir, South of Pine Island. The report and pictures are available online on the cyanobacteria tracker map: https://ahs-vt.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=a46d42c05e864a198ab5dc152f9d09b9
People may experience allergy-like reactions after coming in contact with cyanobacteria, and if they or pets drink the water, they may experience more severe symptoms. Because of this, it is important that people and their pets stay clear of water where there are cyanobacteria. More information, including a video on recognizing cyanobacteria blooms, is available at: www.healthvermont.gov/cyanobacteria
