Algal bloom

An algal bloom is the excessive growth of algae, which are naturally occurring the in the river. Algal blooms are caused by excessive amounts of the nutrients phosphorus and nitrogen, and are often seen when calm water and warm weather conditions exist. Algal blooms can impact dissolve oxygen, are aesthetically unpleasant, and certain algae can contain toxins that can impact human health.
