Algal Toxicology Project Support at CEES

Citizens Energy Group has partnered with the Center for Earth and Environmental Science (CEES) at IUPUI by supporting the Algal Toxicology Project.

The project began in 2012 and focuses on the environmental factors that trigger the growth of blue-green algae. The alga, or Cyanobacteria, is responsible for the odorous compounds produced in source waters.

Citizens has supported this effort by awarding a 3.5 year grant in 2013 and by assisting with laboratory and analytical research in area reservoirs.
