Extension and partners aim to better understand lake health

To better understand potentially harmful blue-green algae, University of Minnesota Extension educator Shahram Missaghi is part of a team studying Madison Lake in Blue Earth County. Mankato Free Press reporter Kristine Goodrich recently took a closer look at the work, which is led by University of Minnesota professor Miki Hondzo and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

Missaghi and other partners in the project will study information amassed in floating data-gathering equipment to better understand origins of blue-green algae and potential ways to prevent it from occurring. The study is funded by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources.
