2014 State Survey

Toxic algae outbreaks, or Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are a widespread problem across the U.S., but few states have programs dedicated to monitoring or reporting on these outbreaks. That’s the top finding in a 50-state survey conducted in spring 2014 by Resource Media and the National Wildlife Federation. The broad diversity in how – and whether – states monitor HABs, and their methods for informing the public about potentially harmful toxic algae outbreaks, confirms that there is tremendous room for improvement in how the US manages this risk to public health and local economies.
