Algae Information Resources

The IUPUI Center for Earth and Environment Science is pleased to continue partnership with Citizens Water to conduct algae monitoring and speciation in Geist, Morse and Eagle Creek reservoirs.

The Center has provided field and analytical support to the drinking water utility, collecting data that is used to ensure that production processes are maximized to deliver the highest quality drinking water. We have been assisting in monitoring local reservoirs since summer 2008 through partnerships with local agencies and utilities. Citizens Water is continuing this partnership through funding to support the field and analytical support related to algae monitoring and speciation in area reservoirs. This partnership provides significant opportunity for students and faculty in the School of Science to be engaged with the drinking water utility to better understand the connections between scientific study and practical application.
