Lake George Waterkeeper Recognized for Algal Bloom Efforts

The Post Star 

Lake George Waterkeeper Chris Navitsky will be honored at an upcoming New York Water Environment Association meeting for his study of nearshore algal blooms.

Navitsky has used biomonitoring, which involves collecting and testing algae samples, since 2008. Issues with organic waste, most likely from sewage pollution, were documented at Silver Bay, Diamond Point, Oneida Bay and Dunham’s Bay.

The results have led to a septic system replacement program at Dunham’s Bay in Queensbury, and a multi-layered prioritization map to identify septic system problem areas in the town of Lake George.
