We Bet You Didn’t Know That New York Is Home To One Of The Only Meromictic Lakes In America

You might’ve read that headline and wondered what the heck a meromictic lake is. In most lakes in America, the different layers of water mix intermittently. In a meromictic lake, there is no mixing that occurs and the layers stay completely separate at all times. This is pretty rare, and only a few of these unique lakes are located in the country. One of these rare lakes is right here in New York: the beautiful Ballston Lake, which shares its name with the town it is located in.

Have you ever visited Ballston Lake? Did you know that it was a unique type of lake? Share your thoughts in the comments!
