Swimming has been banned at another New Jersey lake due to the presence of an extensive harmful algal bloom.
State environmental officials on Tuesday closed swimming areas on Greenwood Lake, which stretches about nine miles between West Milford, New Jersey and Orange County in New York.
The directive says people should avoid making contact with the lake’s water, but notes that boating is still allowed on the waterway.
Often referred to as blue-green algae, cyanobacteria are not true algae but are capable of excessive growth through photosynthesis.
