SKANEATELES, NY (WSYR-TV) — The Skaneateles Lake Association reports a small Harmful Algal Bloom was spotted in Skaneateles Lake Monday morning near Thayer Park.

Monitoring equipment spotted the bloom just before 8:30 a.m., but it dissipated by 11 a.m., though it could reform because of sunlight, high temperature and a lack of wind.

The SLA says this is the first report of a Harmful Algal Bloom on the lake this year.
