Public Discussion of Blue Green Algae

  • August 21, 2014
  • 4:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Finger Lakes Institute 601 South Main Street Geneva, NY

The Finger Lakes Institute at HWS will host a discussion on blue-green algae, the cause of the recent drinking water ban that affected hundreds of thousands of people in Ohio and Michigan. Measurable amounts of similary types of toxins were found in Honeoye and Owasco Lake samples in recent years. "The HABs and HAB Nots - Impact of the Built Environment on Blue-green Algal Growth and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in the Finger Lakes," a presentation by Clifford Callinan, P.E., with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, will discuss the connections among blue-green algae, harmful algal blooms, Finger Lakes water quality, and drinking water systems.

The event is $25 for the general public. For a more detailed description of the event and to  register, go to the following link:
