We have released a new fact sheet on Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary and it is available here and also on the Local Delta Issues section of our website.
Harmful Algal Blooms are proliferating in freshwater systems internationally, nationally, statewide, and locally here in the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary. Stockton, the Delta’s environmental justice and rural communities are ground zero for risk from health impacts associated with Harmful Algal blooms.
Example of a HAB in Discovery Bay, Summer 2019.
In the next few weeks, we will release more information on HABs, so keep a eye out!
Yours in service,
Restore the Delta
