Unwelcome algae blooms in area lakes

This article is about three lakes along the Housatonic River – Candlewood, Lillinonah and Zoar – that sustained significant blue-green algae blooms in their waters this month. Dr. Jennifer Klug, associate professor of biology, and her community partners are quoted in it: Jennifer Klug, an associate professor of biology at Fairfield University who has worked with Friends of the Lake on Lillinonah’s environmental problems, said this year’s autumn weather appears to be most responsible for the algae. “It’s been very warm and very dry,” she said. “The water temperatures have been quite warm in Lillinonah for October.”
