Great Plains and Midwest Harmful Algal Bloom Workshop
February 4 - February 5
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Research and Development, Region 7 and the University of Kansas Edwards Campus are co-hosting a workshop exploring issues and solutions surrounding harmful algal blooms in waterbodies within the Midwest and Great Plains. The workshop will include participation from states, tribes and other agencies within U.S. EPA Regions 5, 7 and 8.
Discussions will focus on both identifying the issues and challenges associated with excess nutrients leading to the formation of HABs in the Great Plains and Midwest regions, as well as the best practices for nutrient reduction and source water protection to prevent HABs in agricultural dominated waterbodies.
The intended audience for the workshop is water quality professionals from state and tribal water quality programs in U.S. EPA Region 5, 7 and 8, academic institutions, and other federal programs.
