Confirmed BGA Nassau Lake/Valatie Kill

DEC has advised that another BGA bloom exists on Nassau Lake, as per sampling conducted by regional DEC staff on Monday.

The lab results from the samples collected on the west shore, south shore, and inlet on Monday confirmed the presence of a blue green algae bloom on both Nassau Lake and the inlet area around Morey Park. The differences in the actual blue green (BG) chlorophyll numbers are probably not important- all are above the DEC bloom criteria of 30 ug/l. The toxin results will be delayed, but the messaging should be the same regardless of whether toxin levels are high or low:


1.       Lake residents and pets should avoid exposure to any surface scums or discolored water

2.       Anyone exhibiting symptoms consistent with BGA exposure- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, skin or throat irritation, allergic reactions or breathing difficulties- should seek medical assistance and report these symptoms to the Rensselaer County DOH

3.       For more information and other advice, please go to the DEC ( and DOH ( websites
