Next Blue-Green Algae Task Force meeting will be Feb. 10th in Gainesville

Join the next meeting of the Blue-Green Algae Task Force, where task force members will discus onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS) and consider the recommendations of the OSTDS Technical Advisory Committee in advance of final DEP rulemaking, especially as they relate to water quality and harmful algal blooms.

The physical placement of OSTDS, the application of innovative OSTDS technologies and the replacement of some OSTDS with sewer can improve water quality and help reduce the occurrence and severity of harmful algal blooms.

The meeting will be held in-person and virtually. Please visit this webpage to register for the virtual meeting. Details on the in-person venue will follow.
