Harmful Cyanobacteria Bloom (HCB-1) Training

April 26, 2022

12:00 pm – 2:15 pm
Location: Online

The Harmful Cyanobacteria Blooms (HCBs) training reviews key information found in the two ITRC HCB Guidance Documents, the 2021 Strategies for Preventing and Managing Harmful Cyanobacterial Blooms (HCB-1) and the 2022 companion document focused on benthic HCBs (HCB-2). ITRC’s HCB-2 focuses on the ecology, toxin production, management, and mitigation of benthic HCBs and is a companion document to the HCB-1 document released by ITRC in March 2021.

The Harmful Cyanobacteria Bloom (HCB-1) training provides an overview of cyanobacteria (particularly planktonic blooms) and their management, covering five sections from the ITRC HCB-1 guidance document:

Introduction to the Cyanobacteria (Section 3)
Monitoring (Section 4)
Communication and Response Planning (Section 5)
Management and Control (Section 6)
Nutrient Management (Section 7)
