USGS Studies HABs and Water Quality in New York

Detailed Description

A monitoring buoy is prepared for deployment by USGS scientists on Skaneateles Lake in New York. This is part of an effort to study water-quality conditions and harmful algal blooms—known as HABs—in Owasco, Seneca and Skaneateles lakes in New York. This collaborative effort, funded by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the USGS, is in support of the state’s $65 million initiative to aggressively combat HABs in waterbodies across New York.
