Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

Toxins from harmful algal blooms (HABs) are increasingly contaminating sources waters, as well as the drinking water treatment facilities that the source waters supply. These treatment facilities face a difficult task of not only removing the toxins, but doing so in a safe and cost-effective way.

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) Websites

Wisconsin, Indiana, Oregon and Ohio each have algae websites that provide information, fact sheets, and resources for the public about possible high levels of blue-green algae and the potential health effects of Cyanobacteria.

Source Water News

ASDWA’s Source Water News (SW News) is intended to improve outreach and information sharing for state staff engaged in source water protection and sustainability, climate change, and nutrient pollution related efforts. This new “blog” format will become our principal communication vehicle for sharing news and other interesting bits of information with state source water contacts and drinking water program staff. The news and information we share on the blog is expected to be helpful and useful, but not critically time sensitive.
