PORT HENRY — The Port Henry Village Beach reopened Thursday evening.
The public beach on Lake Champlain had been closed at the beginning of the week after toxic blue-green algae was found in the water.
The algae is a cyanobacteria, harmful to humans and animals.
Village Trustee Jack Sheldon said the beach was reopening at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
“We got the OK from the (State) Department of Health,” he said. “We’re opening back up.”
The Moriah Town Beach, also in Port Henry, which had been relocated to Bulwagga Bay side of the Town Campground because of the algae, was also given approval to reopen at its regular location.
