Beyond the ABCs of Algae

Erwin McKone, CGCS

Erwin McKone, CGCS, leads this 90-minute webcast that reviews the role of algae in the aquatic ecosystem. Which type of algae do you have at your course and does knowing it matter? Classic and alternative treatments of algal blooms are examined, as well as selecting a treatment. And what is plankton rain? The new permitting required is also touched on.

Please note: permitting requirements are under regulatory review in many places and may have changed since this event took place.
