Austin explores algae bloom solutions

September 9, 2019

The City of Austin is evaluating all ideas as it tries to get the blue-green algae blooms on Lady Bird Lake under control. So far this summer five dogs have died after swimming in the lake. In addition, the City of Austin just found out another dog got sick, but didn’t die, after playing in the water. The Watershed Protection Department is now in the process of finding the best solution to what could become an annual summer problem.

Brent Bellinger, senior environmental scientist with the City of Austin says a dozen companies have reached out to the city with different solutions to the algae problem. One possibility is a new algaecide that’s being tested at Lake Chippewa in Ohio. Lake Guard Blue is a chemical compound that’s applied to the surface of the lake to treat toxic algae blooms. BlueGreen Technologies says it only took one treatment to make a significant difference. “The treatment was made almost a month ago and until today the lake has been bloom free. It’s the best August they’ve had since 2016,” said Eyal Harel, CEO and co-founder of BlueGreen Technologies.
