JAMESVILLE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Jamesville Beach is closed for swimming because of an algal bloom.

The Onondaga County Health Department says water sampling will be conducted to confirm there are no toxins before the beach is reopened.

Certain types of algae can cause skin or eye irritation, or diarrhea or vomiting if the water is swallowed.

While swimming is off limits for now, but the park is still open its normal hours.
