Joan Hardy spoke about cyanobacteria (bluegreen algae) occurrence and the cyanotoxins they produce. Dr. Hardy along with other Washington State DOH associates, Debra Bouchard, Beth LeDoux, Sally Abella of King County, and Dr. Jean Jacoby of Seattle University studied cyanobacteria and the toxins produced in Puget Sound Lakes under a five year CDC grant. Dr. Hardy talked about results of the studies and the public health implications of cyanobacteria blooms, as well as the posting of informational signs at affected lakes.
