Swimming Still Off Limits At Sylvan Beach

Sylvan Beach, NY (WIBX) – The Oneida County Health Department is continuing to monitor the situation at Sylvan Beach that resulted in a portion of Oneida Lake being closed to swimmers.

Sylvan Beach has been off limits to swimmers since last Thursday after a blue-green alage was found in the water.

Similar condtions have restricted swimming at Verona Beach State Park.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente say the water will continue to be sampled and tested every day until the Health Department can recommend the resumption of swimming at Sylvan Beach.

Picente says while he’s sensitive to the negative impact of closing the beach to swimmers might have on the village’s economy, his first responsibility is to protect public health.

The State Health Department and the DEC are monitoring the situation at Verona Beach.
