The New York State Department of Health District Office has closed the swim area at Red Jacket Park off Lake Street in Penn Yan due to a reported suspect harmful algal bloom.  The Village of Penn Yan staff have identified a blue-green algal bloom in the Red Jacket Park swim area.

No swimming or fishing in that area until the HAB has cleared.  Fact sheets and closure signs have been provided at the site. Once the HAB has cleared, notification for a re-opening will be given. For more information on blue-green algae, go to:  https://www.health.ny.gov/publications/6563.pdf
