Truesdale Lake  

South Salem, New York

Beaches Closed

A survey of Truesdale Lake Thursday (8/18) morning indicated poor water quality.

With the forecasted rain, Allied Biological, the company that monitors and treats the lake, recommended that the upper board be removed from the dam to allow the lake to flush out as much as possible.  The upper board has been removed. As a precaution, it is also recommended that the beaches remain closed for today (and possibly throughout the weekend depending on rainfall, flow and effects of flushing) and that swimmers (and pets) avoid going in the water.

Allied Biological will return on Monday to survey and treat the lake if conditions improve between now and then. We will keep you posted.

  1. On the infrequent occasions I happen to be there (Truesdale) I find myself alone in swimming the algae ridden but oh so lovely (warm) lake. BUT I always “swim” with noodle keeping my head out of water. Isn’t this “safe”?
