Algae toxins still found in Skaneateles Lake, but none in tap water

Algae toxins still found in Skaneateles Lake, but none in tap water”

However, officials said the addition of chlorine is keeping toxins out of customers' tap water.

As of Wednesday evening, the guidance from the Onondaga County Health Department and New York State Health department is still that the drinking water is safe to consumer. That level was detected prior to chlorination, according to the statement. People are asked not to drink, cook, swim or bathe in the water.

"All other locations in the water system - including the city of Syracuse, the town of DeWitt, the town of Skaneateles, the village of Elbridge, and the village of Jordan - showed non-detectable levels of algal toxins in finished water", the statement said.

The ministry of the environment has collected water samples at Peninsula Lake and is awaiting the toxin level results.

The health unit says residents at Peninsula Lake, which is located near Huntsville, should not use the water. It was not clear Thursday night if toxins were detected in the untreated water entering the plants.
