    Ep. 58 – Research to Reduce Algae Blooms

    Ep. 58 – Research to Reduce Algae Blooms

    Ever asked yourself, “What is being done to fix algae blooms at Utah Lake”? or “What kind of research are they doing”? This episode contains audio from the June 17, 2021 Utah Lake Commission Governing Board meeting. In that meeting, Erica Gaddis, Director of Utah Division of Water Quality reported on the progress of several research projects going on the lake regarding nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen and their impact on algae blooms. Core samples to biassay studies and more are being completed to create a comprehensive approach to looking at the sources of nutrients (nutrients are the food for the algae blooms to grow).

Love This Podcast

This is the best podcast to keep tabs on the happens at Utah Lake. There are so many projects going on and they have been covering some very interesting ones so far.

The interviews with other folks working on these projects is very interesting and informative.

Thank you for this great podcast resource.

Bad audio

I can only hear the audio in one earbud, I like the idea of a Utah lake podcast just the audio makes it hard to hear.
