  • Army Corps reminds Prompton visitors to be aware of potential Harmful Algae Blooms

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) Philadelphia District is reminding visitors to Prompton Dam and State Park to be aware of the potential for blue-green algae in the lake and the potential for harmful toxins to be present. Visitors are advised to be alert for harmful algal bloom conditions and to avoid contact with discolored water or scum. Algal blooms occur annually, however environmental and lake conditions during the summer season enable the algal blooms to become potentially harmful.
