Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs): What they are and why they matter

Brent Thomas | September 2019

Have you ever heard of harmful algal blooms, also known as HABs? Many people have not, but everyone should be aware of what they are and their implications. HABs are a serious concern due to the fact that they can produce toxins in lakes, rivers, and ponds (surface waters), and are capable of causing illness, irritation, and even death, in pets, livestock, and humans. On top of producing toxins, HABs also bring about treatment challenges for public water systems that use surface water. They can create taste and odor issues in drinking water and increase the frequency needed to clean filters in water treatment plants.
