of Our Water Crisis

Harmful algae blooms continue to plague waters througout the CHNEP area. 

Nutrient pollution has been entering our waterways for decades, so while there is no easy quick fix, with further investments, we can reduce harmful algae blooms that are fueled by it.

Learn about the problem and what we are doing to combat it using best available science, as well technological and nature-based solutions.
