    UWRI videoHarmful Algal Blooms

    This time of year it is important to keep an eye out for potential harmful algal blooms.  These blooms sometimes produce toxins that are harmful to humans and animals and it is best to be safe when any are suspected.  These algae usually float on the surface or may be dispersed in the water column.  For information about confirmed sightings and warnings in Utah, visit the Utah Division of Water Quality.

    For additional information, including identification, visit Utah Water Watch.
