Algae Bloom Headed Our Way
How Is The Algae Bloom Affecting Your Water?
An advisory of an algal bloom that began near West Virginia has now extended as far downstream as Hancock County and is approaching the Henderson area.
HWU staff have been monitoring this event closely. At present, there is no indication that this algal bloom is present in our waters. While there is a high potential for it to make it to Henderson, HWU is prepared to monitor and treat it effectively.
This map depicts the areas where Recreational Use Health Advisories are in effect.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Henderson is a “Combined Sewer System” community. In the older parts of the city, we have combined sewers that channel both sanitary and stormwater to the wastewater treatment plant when it rains. In newer parts of the city, we have a separate storm sewer system.
