HAB Lake Management Workshop 2024

The Division of Water Monitoring, Standards and Pesticide Control and the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium recruited a team of lakes management and cyanobacterial HAB experts to address the second component of the Governor’s HAB initiative focusing on enhancing scientific expertise and building the state’s capacity for HAB response. The HAB Expert Team’s primary obje

ctive is to provide guidance to DEP on HAB prevention, mitigation and management for NJ lakes and other waterbodies. As a culmination of the Expert Team’s research, literature review, and data analysis, they released a Harmful Algal Bloom Lake Management Guidance (2024) providing details to lake managers on how to develop a lake-specific action plan. The Guidance includes HAB prevention, mitigation, and management for NJ waterbodies that considers short-term and long-term action plan components to characterize lake conditions and lake management actions. The virtual workshop is scheduled for April 23, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Registration closes on April 19 at 3:00 PM. Teams meeting link will be sent upon close of registration.
