Ohio EPA announces website for algae bloom notification

Environmental Protection Agency -- Ohioans can now access real-time data on recreational use advisories for harmful algal blooms at state park beaches and drinking water public notices through a new OEPA web-based map application.  According to agency officials the new website boasts interactive geospatial content for users, allowing them to better understand current advisories and HAB sampling data. It includes a color-coded look at the entire state which citizens can use to access additional information.  OEPA worked with the State of Ohio Geographic Information System Office in developing this application and plans to add additional interactive GIS maps on other environmental topics.
