Collaboration Opportunities

  • California Cyanobacteria and Harmful Algal Bloom (CCHAB) Network
    Come join this inter-organizational workgroup of the California Water Quality Monitoring Council, whose mission is to work towards the development and maintenance of a comprehensive, coordinated program to identify and address the causes and impacts of cyanobacteria and harmful algal blooms (HABs) in California. Federal, state and local agencies, environmental laboratories, waterbody managers, public health agencies, Tribes, stakeholders and end-users (such as ranchers, fisherman, veterinarians, and wildlife rescue groups), scientific researchers, and non-governmental organizations affected by HABs. Agencies that have key assessment, management, monitoring, or restoration programs are encouraged to participate in the CCHAB Network and its subcommittees.
