How to fix a toxic algae problem in catalent,zoo and zoos
A toxic algae is spreading in cat and zoo habitats across the country and a company is trying to tackle it with a plan to improve water quality.
The Environmental Protection Agency issued a public health advisory Monday on the spread of algae, the most prevalent species of algae in rivers and lakes.
Algae can grow in stagnant water, especially during winter.
A single plant can eat up to half of the water in a pond or river.
“The EPA will work with local and state authorities to address the environmental threat posed by the emergence of algae,” EPA spokesman Matt Miller said in a statement.
Algae can cause algae blooms in freshwater lakes, rivers and other lakes.
That algae can cause the lakes to sink and the water to become polluted.
The EPA has issued several advisory orders to reduce the pollution of waterways, and the agency said it will update the advisory to address a “further threat from algal blooms.”
The EPA is working with local authorities to combat the algae threat, and Miller said it would take time for local officials to take the lead.
“Algal blooming is occurring in many areas and it will take time to determine how to best manage it,” Miller said.
The EPA said it is working to monitor the threat to the lakes and to work with community leaders to identify the best ways to improve the quality of water in communities that have an interest in doing so.
