New resource for blue-green algae bloom information

The Environment Agency has launched a new resource detailing the locations of Blue-Green Algae Bloom in Cumbria.

The agency is now publishing maps of suspected blue-green algal bloom locations on its CitizenSpace site which is available to partners, landowners and the public.

The maps will be updated weekly with the locations of blue-green algae blooms that have occurred throughout the summer.

The online resource will not replace the Environment Agency’s direct contact with riparian owners and statutory bodies that it contacts when a bloom is reported.
