Water Quality Update: 8/4/2022 Lake Ontario & Seasonal Change

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Water Quality remains pretty stable across the County with variable storm events that help to create more “flow” in the system which causes water movement and introduces more oxygen thus helping keep balance in the system with weed growth, fish & wildlife heartiness and algal blooms.   As far as water levels go, Lake Ontario predictions are pretty close to date. Upland streams and tributaries need to remain clear. If there are log jams that completely cross a stream system this can cause other flooding problems during storm events. Try and work out how to remove it by lopping it up or sliding it over to the bank.  However, some limbs or tree top branches in the stream create habitat for wildlife, help keep streams cooler and do help in some instances with bank stabilization and erosion.
