Harmful Blue-Green Algae Blooms
Cyanobacteria are commonly referred to as blue-green algae. They occur naturally in waters used for recreation, fishing, and drinking water. Under certain circumstances, these algae may grow rapidly to form dense accumulations known as blooms. When blooms are formed by toxin-producing bacteria, it is generally referred as a Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB). These blooms are considered harmful because they can produce irritants and/or toxins, called cyanotoxins, which can pose health risks to humans and animals.

Learn how to identify a bloom, what to do when you see an algal bloom as well as possible causes.
