Sylvan Beach, NY (WIBX) - Water samples collected by the Oneida County Health Department from Oneida Lake show that toxin levels from blue-green algae are no longer a public health risk at Sylvan Beach.

The discovery of the algae last week resulted in a portion of Sylvan Beach being closed to swimmers.

The Health Department will continue to work closely with village officials to monitor Oneida Lake for algae blooms

Meanwhile, the blue-green algae bloom at Verona Beach State Park has not fully dissipated and that area remains closed.
