On July 16, 2014, EPA’s Office of Wetlands, Oceans, and Watersheds will host a webinar on harmful algal blooms (HABs) and drinking water, entitled, “How To Protect Your Drinking Water From Harmful Algal Blooms.” Karen Sklenar from The Cadmus Group and Tom Conry from Waco Water Utilities Services will continue the series with a discussion of the impact of HABs on drinking water sources, the extent to which treatment facilities can remove toxins, and ultimately how people can help to reduce the environmental, health, and economic problems in the future.

This series is a part of a broader outreach effort that aims to focus public attention on HABs, which are associated with nutrient pollution, and can sicken people and pets, devastate aquatic ecosystems, and be a detriment to the economy.
