The Oneida County Health Department says blue-green algae has been found in parts of Oneida Lake.

Officials say the algae could pose a health risk to people and pets exposed to large quantities.

Blue-green algae blooms are evident on the north shore area of the lake, which is outside of Oneida County.

The Health Department will continue to monitor the situation and advise the Village of Sylvan Beach, campers and swimmers should it become necessary.

The Health Department is offering the following recommendations when the lake water is contaminated with blue-green algae.

Don’t swim or wade near blooms or surface scum.

Don’t drink the water.

Keep children and pets away from any blooms or scum.

Rinse with clean water if exposed.

Consider medical attention if you have symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, skin, eye or throat irritation or breathing difficulties after contact with blue-green algae.
