Public Workshop on Harmful Algae Blooms

  • Hazard Room, University of Rhode Island, Coastal Institute Building (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

About: As part of continued efforts to support a strong shellfish industry in Rhode Island, the Department of Environmental Management and partners are holding this informational meeting to review the Ocean State’s new monitoring and contingency response plan for harmful algae blooms (HAB). Last year, Rhode Island experienced its first HAB caused by the presence of toxic phytoplankton in local waters; the event triggered an emergency closure of the state’s shellfishing areas. A subsequent bloom earlier this year resulted in a second emergency closure of some waters. As part of the workshop, officials will review routine monitoring efforts for phytoplankton in the state’s waters and new emergency protocols in the case an HAB is detected.

Public Hearing on Clean-up Plan for Wild Harbor, Fiddlers Cove-Rands Harbor and Quissett Harbor

About: The Wild Harbor, Fiddlers Cove-Rands Harbor, and Quissett Harbor estuarine systems on Cape Cod are impaired because of excess nutrients, mainly nitrogen, which choke waterbodies with harmful algae, deplete oxygen for fish and shellfish populations, destroy critical eelgrass beds needed for sustaining marine life, and reduce swimming, fishing and boating opportunities. The restoration plans for these estuary systems, formulated by Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the University of Massachusetts/Dartmouth School for Marine Science and Technology, is proposed as part of a comprehensive, collaborative project intended to improve estuarine water quality in 70 embayments along the southeastern Massachusetts coastline. At the meeting, MassDEP staff will present a draft Total Maximum Daily Load for limiting nitrogen to the amounts that the waterbodies can absorb without violating water-quality standards and impairing uses. The public comment period ends Oct. 13. Written comments can be submitted to: Barbara Kickham, Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Watershed Management, 8 New Bond Street, Worcester, MA 01606. Electronic format comments should be sent to barbara.kickham@state.ma.us.

About: Where are you planning to be for the “Great American Eclipse”? If you’re not traveling to be in the path of totality, you still can see a spectacular partial eclipse in Rhode Island, where the moon’s shadow will cover 66 percent of the sun. Special activities at the Frosty Drew Observatory begin at 10 a.m. Several solar telescopes will be available for viewing. A white-light scope shows the event in its natural colors, as it happens. A hydrogen-alpha scope filters the light to enhance sunspots and solar prominences. Solar projectors with big screens will make for easy viewing of all the events in real time. The solar eclipse starts at 1:30 p.m. and will continue until 4, with the maximum 66 percent eclipse occurring at 2:47. The observatory will have a limited supply of eclipse safety glasses available for visitors to use. Glasses will also be available for purchase. If you bring your own, be sure they are properly certified. A $1 donation to the observatory is suggested for this event.
