Rain keeps algae away from St. Johns River

Published 7/17/2008
“Algae started out in the end of May or June looking like it was going to bloom a bit, but within the last month rain has made the blooms nonexistent,” said Kraig McLane, the St. Johns River Water Management District lower basin program manager.

Near the Dames Point Bridge in Jacksonville, where salt and fresh water meet, is one area where the effects of algae die-off on fish populations can be readily seen, he said.
