First a toxic algal bloom, now elevated E. coli levels — and double the health risk at Utah Lake 15.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Health officials continue to urge residents to stay out of the water at Utah Lake, even more so now that a second potentially harmful bacteria has entered the fray. The Utah County Health Department posted warning signs at Sandy Beach on Friday afternoon, after the amount of E. coli collected in a routine water sample exceeded the threshold considered safe for recreation. The entire lake is under a warning, due to a toxic algal bloom that developed there late last month. Aislynn Tolman-Hill, a s...

Health warnings on Utah Lake expanded as toxic bloom continues to grow 13.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Officials say residents should avoid contact with the waters of Utah Lake in light of the detection of a deadly toxin. A bloom of toxic algae, detected late last month, has continued to grow and now appears to cover the majority of the lake west of Provo, according to state officials. And all of the latest samples from the lake tested positive for low levels of anatoxin, a neuro toxin that can be fatal if ingested. Though toxin levels have not yet reached concentrations thought to be fatal, Utah...

Utah Lake still open for boating, but people and pets should beware toxic algae in certain areas 8.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune

The department is waiting for more data, she said, before modifying its stances on health warnings. The agency is “having trouble” getting water sam...

Algal bloom spreads on Utah Lake; holiday boaters warned to steer clear of scummy water 2.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
While boaters are still welcome to enter Utah Lake heading into the busy Fourth of July weekend, weather conditions and the presence of harmful bacteria in the water have teed up the possibility of an explosion in algae that could force closures. The Department of Environmental Quality is awaiting test results that will show whether the bloom contains harmful cyanotoxins. The presence of a bloom in the lake’s southern end at Provo Bay prompted the Utah County Health Department to issue warnings ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Will algal blooms return to Utah waters? If so, state officials say they’re better prepared 21.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah is better prepared to respond to algal blooms should the state see a repeat of last summer’s infestations on Utah Lake and Scofield Reservoir, officials said Tuesday — but how to prevent recurrences remains a hot topic of debate. It’s unclear whether large algal blooms will return to Utah’s waters this year, said Erica Gaddis, newly-appointed director of the state Division of Water Quality. The winter’s sizable snow pack should have filled Utah’s lakes and reservoirs with plenty of cold wat... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Wildlife-rich lagoon in Florida threatened by building boom 4.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
On the Indian River Lagoon, Fla. • The most biologically diverse waterway in America is seriously ill. The Indian River Lagoon is repeatedly being choked with oxygen-robbing algae, its surface increasingly dotted with thousands of dead fish, manatees, birds and other creatures. The culprits: farm runoff and a huge influx of people that has sent lawn fertilizer and other pollutants into the lagoon, which runs 156 miles along Florida’s Atlantic Coast, almost to Palm Beach, and includes the Cape Ca...

Utah Lake marina dredging delayed until fall 28.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Provo • A $1.3 million dredging project planned for the Utah Lake State Park Marina in April is being delayed probably until after Labor Day. The postponement is due to a number of factors, including too few bidders in the original request, rising water levels and concern not to interrupt the spawning season for the lake’s endangered June suckers, according to Jason Allen, manager of the Utah Lake State Park. “Technically we could start August 1, but with spawning season going late into the se...

Growing algae bloom in Arabian Sea tied to climate change 15.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Bandar al-Rowdah, Oman • The Gulf of Oman turns green twice a year, when an algae bloom the size of Mexico spreads across the Arabian Sea all the way to India. Scientists who study the algae say the microscopic organisms are thriving in new conditions brought about by climate change, and displacing the zooplankton that underpin the local food chain, threatening the entire marine ecosystem. Khalid al-Hashmi, a marine biologist at the Sultan Qaboos University in Oman, wrinkles his nose as the rese... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Faye Flam: Drunken monkeys and the evolution of boozing 8.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Nothing rings in the new year like a solution of bubbling, neurotoxic ethanol. Humanity’s longstanding relationship with alcohol poses an evolutionary puzzle: Surely natural selection would weed out those of our ancestors with a taste for something that clouds judgment, slows reflexes, dulls the senses and impairs balance. Animals in such a state would likely be the first picked off by predators, if they hadn’t already fallen out of a tree. And yet humans all over the world drink ethanol in vari...

Utah air, environmental regulators hope they can bank on guv's proposed budget 9.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Environmental regulators in Utah are hoping for a brighter 2017 after reading the governor’s proposed budget. Gov. Gary Herbert’s budget suggests dedicating $1.45 million next year to buy new air quality monitors and upgrade old, increasingly unreliable equipment. The budget also recommends assigning $123,000 for algal bloom response in the wake of this summer’s massive toxic algal bloom on Utah Lake.
