From Vietnam comes the sad story of the decay of the Nha Trang Bay as a result of uncontrolled wastewater disposal from various sources.  In Uganda, as if Lake Victoria was not already in a huge mess, comes a report of the damage and abuse done to one of the large wetlands (Kinwataka Swamp) that has all but negated the water quality polishing function.

Concern has once again been raised (see here on this blog) about cyanobacteria having endocrine disrupting characteristics.

In Oregon, the army is once again on the watch for algal blooms as spring snow melts start to fill Lost Creek Lake.  The contentious documentary “Bloom”, about Lake Champlain, will be screened this week.  Hopefully it will make it onto YouTube or somewhere in due course.
