1 Cayuga Lake A North End Perspective NABs, HABs, Hydrilla Lisa B. Cleckner, Director May 6,

2 Talk Outline Introduction NABs (Nuisance Algal Blooms) benthic algae study HABs (Harmful Algal Blooms) Cyanobacteria and fluoroprobe measurements in Cayuga Lake and related work on other Finger Lakes Hydrilla the north end version in Aurora 2

3 Finger Lakes HWS Halfman

4 Some Guiding Principles Finger Lakes are big lakes Understudied and need many pairs of eyes Build on previous work Avoid duplication when possible Work closely with watershed associations, leverage expertise from other FLs, GLs Nearshore/human health understudied Cyanobacteria, NABs, and HABs Contaminants methyl mercury Bacteria/bathing beaches Invasive species 4

5 Cayuga Lake North End Thanks, Trip Advisor! GB

6 Benthic Algae Project Motivation Benthic algal fouling on beaches Problems? Nuisance: Smell, interfere with recreation, drinking water taste? Health: harbor bacteria, pathogens Economic: property values? Others? 6

7 Motivation Frequent calls to agencies and managers for help Distinguish from HABs Compare with Great Lakes Saginaw Bay, Erie, Huron, Ontario, others GLAA Demonstration project Sediments, nutrients, beach fouling $20K funding level from NY Sea Grant 7

8 Sites and Approach Three sites in Cayuga Lake from Union Springs to Aurora Nearshore (W, E) 2 m depth Middle 5 m depth Sample water every three weeks at 9 sites (April Sept) Nutrients, YSI, secchi Assess biomass of benthic algae over season Diving, quadrats, camera/visual Dry weight, P Work with citizen scientists and Cayuga Lake Watershed Network 8

15 The bbe FluoroProbe Acquired in July 2016 through a New York State Water Resources Institute grant Differentiates algal classes and concentrations Works up to a depth of 300 m Measures algal communities throughout water column 15

16 The FluoroProbe: How It Works moldaenke.de/en/ Chlorophyll a (chl a) is a fluorescent pigment required for photosynthesis Different algae have different pigments that interact with chl a Each algal class has its own fluorescence fingerprint 16

22 HABs and Role of Nitrogen Non nitrogen fixing genera (e.g., Microcystis) blooms are proliferating Many cyanobacteria are extremely competitive for ammonium (NH 4+ ), the N form most easily incorporated into biomass NH + 4 associated with toxin production in cyanobacteria Most monitoring is for NO 3 only 5/09/microcystis and anabaena 03.jpg?w=1024&h=694 22

25 Hydrilla verticillata Named after the Hydra, the giant, serpentlike monster with multiple tentacles Acts like the bully of the waterworld can overtake native vegetation due to fast growth Decreases oxygen and eliminates fish mythology creatures/ fisherman.com/conservation politics/fish spawning/ 25

26 Where is Hydrilla in GL Basin? Marinette County, WI (treated with Aquathol and water drawdown) Cuyahoga County, OH (actively managed) Summit County, OH (management information unavailable) Erie County, PA (management information unavailable) Crawford, County, PA (actively managed) NY Five Counties with Hydrilla (Monroe, Erie, Niagara, Tioga, Tompkins, Broome, and downstate) 26

27 Hydrilla in Cayuga County Discovered by Floating Classroom (Again!) Followed up by four pronged survey: UTM Grid Survey (Racine Johnson Aquatics) Point intercept Survey (Finger Lakes Institute/FL PRISM) Outer Perimeter Rake toss Survey (Floating Classroom) Citizen scientists Education and Outreach: working with partners More info fingerlakesinvasives.org Photo credits: Kate Des Jardin 27

28 Survey Results Initial recommendations to treat 27 acres based on positive identification of Hydrilla Three treatment options discussed so far: Benthic Matting $10M Sonar H4C pellets $134K Komeen Crystals $134K for three applications Proximity of water intake 28
