Algae blooms can take on many appearances. A bloom can look like bright green or blue-green paint, thick pea-green soup, white or brownish-red foam or scum. These are photos of blooms that have occurred in various Oregon water bodies.
Join Our Listserv
The HABS program has created a listserv to share information with partners, stakeholders and interested public. When a health advisory is issued, an email is sent to subscribers that includes the news release and water sample results (algae species and cell counts). Emails are also sent when an advisory is lifted. Other timely information may be periodically shared as well. To join the list, email us at Hab.firstname.lastname@example.org.
