Echo Reservoir, September 2018

The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) visited Echo Reservoir on September 7, 2018, and observed green cyanobacteria resembling grass clippings in masses along the shoreline northwest of the boat ramp. The bloom was small and mostly confined to the shoreline. Evidence of prior bloom events could be seen above the current water line, which appears to have dropped approximately 10 feet since the last monitoring visit. DWQ collected samples for further lab analysis.
