Wayne Presents! Algae Bloom in Androscoggin
6:30 PM
Wayne Community Church
Town of Wayne Information Forum: WaynePresents! - Androscoggin Lake Algae Bloom and Health Advisory

Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 6:30 pm, in-person (Wayne Church sanctuary) and livestreamed (see wayneumc.com)
Sponsored by Wayne Selectboard
Two years ago a massive bloom affected Androscoggin Lake from mid August all the way to early December. A few weeks ago, it emerged again and visibility in the water is very low. A Swimming advisory has been issued. One report has it that in 34 years it has never been as bad as these 2 years.
What is going on? What is the cause? Is there anything we can do about these blooms? Are more of them likely in the future? We are hearing many of these questions.

For answers, come or tune in to this WaynePresents! livestreamed program next Wednesday evening at 6:30. We will have a group of experts with us who can explain what we know about how algae blooms happen, what they tell us about the Lake, and things that can be done. We will also tell about what we don't know. For More Information, contact Lloyd Irland, 446-3682. Wayne Selectboard
