Lake Ronkonkoma Closed Due To Deadly Bacteria Infestation
So it begins. For the first time in 2017, Lake Ronkonkoma has been closed due to an infestation of deadly bacteria. Spring has only just begun, and already the toxic menace of Lake Ronkonkoma is in evidence.
For longtime residents of Ronkonkoma, this is nothing new. As bad as the water quality is year round, the toxic slurry reaches a fever pitch several times every year, rendering the lake unsafe for human life. Unsafe for human life! Even corrupt and inept government officials can't turn a blind eye when it gets this bad.
Though this is the first time the lake was closed in 2017, you can count on the fact that it will not be the last. The time to end this terrible cycle is now.
