Unfortunately, no. But both DES and Lake Winnipesaukee Association are monitoring as much as they can. You might want to join LWA, or at least join their Facebook group. This year's conditions are ideal for cyanobacteria--high water levels cause extra erosion and phosphorous to enter the lake, then high heat promotes growth.

The good news is that cyanobacteria blooms are readily visible by the time they are dangerous--if you see big clouds of green, don't go in or over it. If the water looks normal, you are not in danger. You can Google for images too
