Interested in Water Quality?

Then you'll be interested in the PLWA Summary Report on Methods for the Control of Nuisance Blue-green Algae (Cyanobacteria). It provides an Executive Summary; root causes of B-G Algae, details of the PLWA work, and what we are currently advocating for. As well, there is a detailed review of the work done on each of the options.

This Report was completed, in part, to the request for feedback, following the release of the AB Env/Sustainable Resources Development Report: Lake and Watershed Management Options for the Control of Nuisance Blue-Green Algal (Cyanobacteria) Blooms in Pigeon Lake, Alberta, 2012.
