Decision-making for managing harmful algal blooms

September 23, 2022

Cyanobacteria are a global water-quality
concern because these organisms can develop into
harmful blooms that affect ecologic, economic, and
public health.
U.S. Geological Survey scientists worked with
the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation
and Historic Preservation and the New York State
Department of Environmental Conservation to
develop a structured decision-making template for
managing cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms.
This approach can help natural resource managers
make decisions to manage water bodies threatened by
harmful algal blooms.
