    Harmful Algal BloomHarmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

       The Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ) recently received funding to continue their monitoring of lakes for Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) in Utah. This testing is crucial to protecting Utah’s citizens, pets, and livestock from harm. Currently the UDWQ is allowing Utah Water Watch (UWW) members to join in their efforts to collect sample and identify HABs.
