Graham Freeman and Brian Reese from the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality will provide important information about algal blooms that can occur on the Boise River and elsewhere.  They’ll explain how to identify an algal bloom, why they are dangerous, and what you should do if you visit a waterbody with an algal bloom.  They’ll report on the the blooms Idaho experienced in 2016 and how DEQ monitors the harmful blooms.
