[ARCHIVED] Recent reports of water quality at Madeira and Indian Shores beaches

Findings show a bloom of Trichodesmium along the coast that has moved from offshore to onshore.

To report a bloom, call DEP's toll-free Algal Bloom Reporting Hotline at 855-305-3903

FWC is investigating further and will provide updates as necessary.  Beach goers may comment on a musty smell, but it is not known to be harmful in Florida.  As it dies off, it may turn green, then red/pink and lastly white as it continues to die off.
