Task Force Reports and Presentations
Reports prepared by the Florida Harmful Algal Bloom Task Force
identify and address harmful algal bloom issues and concerns,
including negative environmental impacts and potential human health
Participants in this 2001 workshop met to discuss the use of probes, sensors, and other instruments to detect blue-green algal species and toxins. The workshop focused on the needs of the drinking water industry.
This report, also called the "White Paper," was prepared by the
Harmful Algal Bloom Task Force Technical Advisory Group. It was
submitted to the Task Force in 1999.
Based on recommendations from the FHABTF Public Health Technical
Panel, this technical report updates and expands on the 1999 "White
Paper." It provides information for managers to develop localized
public health response plans to HABs.
