Hi friends. So I did more research on these algal blooms, and I found an article about it from last year, meaning that this isn’t as new of a dilemma as I had originally thought. I found this article on the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment website, and it is super clear and informative. Please, take a few minutes to check out the article and read up on microcystis blooms, that way we are all on the same page regarding exactly what this threatening algae is. Check it out!
