We will resume monitoring for harmful algal blooms and waterborne pathogens in summer 2023. HABs may be present in Utah water bodies year-round. If you are recreating, avoid areas of scum, know how to recognize the signs of a harmful algal bloom, and learn how to protect yourself and your family, including dogs.
