If you live on or within a lake community in Arizona in the last year or so you’ve probably either been directly affected or heard of Golden Alga (Chrysophytes). The Golden Alga are new and unwelcome visitor from Texas where it has been thriving for the last decade. Arizona has typically dealt with algae as a nuisance that impedes water transfer in irrigation systems and creates an unsightly mess on your neighborhood lake. Setting realistic goals and financial expectations will be vital in controlling Golden Alga in your community. The lake management team will have to take a proactive stance to potential Golden Alga blooms, providing the capability to identify and treat these blooms in an expedited time frame. The client will have to provide not only financial means to accomplish this, but the ability to give your lake manager a prompt approval to move ahead quickly with these proactive measures. The client will need to accept certain facts involved in the management of their community lake, and the lake manager will need to clearly articulate the challenges that controlling Golden Alga presents:
- Golden Alga is capable of spreading in a rapid manner.
- Golden Alga is capable of killing all fish in the affected lake.
- Golden Alga is transferred via natural (waterfowl), and manmade (boats, canals, etc.)
- Golden Alga can be effectively controlled with proactive management.
