Cyanobacteria/Algae Data & Reports
LACA executes an annual cyanobacteria monitoring project. Cyanobacteria-specific data maintained by the Water Quality Committee are available by submitting an e-mail request to the Water Quality Project Officer. Include full name, organization, email, phone number, data requested (parameters, dates, etc), a justification (how the data will be used) and if you would like approval to release the data to other agencies or in a formal report.
Private citizens are encouraged to submit reports of algae on the Virginia Department of Health website. Click on this link to go to the online report page. The LACA Water Quality committee would appreciate being informed of any algae reports that are submitted. The Water Quality Project Officer can provide assistance on submitting algae reports.
