Welcome to Humboldt Baykeeper
Humboldt County Issues Blue-Green Algae Warning

Officials with the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) are warning recreational users of all fresh water bodies to avoid contact with algae this summer and early fall. Blue-green algae, also known as cyanobacteria, are found naturally in water and wet environments. Blue-green algae prefer warm stagnant nutrient rich water and are found most often in ponds, lakes, and slow moving rivers.

Citizen Water Monitoring Data Draws Attention from State Regulators

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using Humboldt Baykeeper’s 2005-2009 Citizen Water Monitoring data, the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board staff recently recommended six waterways for listing under Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act due to bacterial pollution (E. coli).

On May 8, the Regional Board held a workshop in Fortuna to discuss the recommended listing, which will prioritize research to pinpoint the sources and ultimately work towards  improving water quality.
