The state Department of Environmental is reporting that toxic algae blooms have been discovered in 55 water bodies across the state. Locally here in CNY, at least two popular spots are affected.

Verona Beach remains closed to swimming because of the persistent algae bloom, according to the New York Parks department. The spray park remains open and visitors can still sun tan on the beach.

This week's DEC list includes two more spots in Oneida County:

1) Oneida Lake

2) Turtle Pond Delta Lk SP

Warm temperatures and calm days aid in the growth of the algae. Keep an eye on this stuff in the water throughout the remainder of your summer.
