Blue-green algae blooms cause closure at beach in Constantia

The David C. Webb Memorial Park Beach on Oneida Lake in Constantia is closed until further notice because of a blue-green algae bloom. According to the Oswego County Health Department, the beach will stay closed until the blooms have cleared and they say it's safe to reopen.

The Constantia Children's Summer Recreation Program will also suspend all swimming activities at the park.

Officials with the Oswego County Health Department suggest people and pets should stay away from the blooms, not drink the water and rinse themselves off with clean water if they come into contact with the algae blooms.
