Klamath River Water Quality

Image of Current Focus for Klamath River Water Quality

In the Upper Klamath River, blue-green algae blooms (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) die off and settle to the river bottom in summer.


Dissolved Oxygen Demand

Image of Dissolved Oxygen Demand

This settled, decaying algae leads to elevated 1st-order sediment oxygen demand (SOD), which in turn contributes to anoxia (zero dissolved oxygen) in river water in summer.
