House passes algal bloom legislation

The House of Representatives passed the Drinking Water Protection Act (H.R. 212) this evening by a bipartisan vote of 375 to 37 pushing federal agencies to provide clear protocols and oversight in the event of a large-scale algal bloom. Representative Kaptur is an original co-sponsor for this legislation which was introduced in this Congress by Rep. Bob Latta. Algal blooms are often the result of excessive runoff from agriculture or urban centers. They can produce a dangerous spike in the concentration of toxins in drinking water and eventually lead to major ecological collapse.
