Algal Bloom Workgroup

The Algal Bloom Workgroup consists of regional water quality experts that routinely monitor for various type of algal blooms throughout the Metropolitan region. The workgroup was created to gather data and develop a regional response to the 2011 and 2012 summer harmful algal blooms (HAB) in the COG region. It will be activated in the future if additional harmful algal blooms are detected in the region.
