SPRING, Texas - Jan. 15, 2024 - PRLog -- Under Barry Cohen, the National Algae Association is making headway in fostering expedited, global solutions in harmful algae blooms, with the goal of clean water for all.

Drought, PFAS/PFOS, carbon, phosphates, nitrates. Nutrient runoff is a residual issue, with experts scrambling with continuous flows and rising costs. Millions of dollars are spent on algae bloom and HAB treatments every year, yet problems increase.

Recently, Cohen opened the NAA group to policy makers and employees from Federal organizations, lake management, homeowner associations and the public. From implementation of new products and services to approving projects that innovators are eager to implement, there are proven solutions to many issues, and the ability to illustrate outcomes, for others.

"This group isn't about research alone, but about the implementation & deployment of verifiable results," said Cohen, followed by his and participant presentations, and conversations promoting collaboration, a constant theme in NAA meetings.

Corydon Coppola, President of Flo-Water, LLC, presented on water quality via sediment removal, and other topics. With outcomes, patents and awards dating back to 2019, he's eager to increase awareness. "Developing systems that enable alternative medias to treat our waters. Flo-Water isn't the end all be all, but it has been designed to facilitate this."  With 20 years of experience, he knows only so much can be done alone. "We need collaboration, partners, discussion groups, end users, inspectors, and regulators to be involved in our solutions to maximize the results.  NAA does exactly this and I am proud to be a contributing member from its inception."

Cohen asked about research, testing and real-time water monitoring, increased nutrient runoff, and possibilities to recycle nutrients into land. "We need to take a holistic approach to fixing these devastating water quality problems."

True to the spirit of collaboration, Coppola brought up Natura Solve, the next participant. He relayed information about the company's natural, liquid mix, and its ability to eliminate runoff, algae and other toxic materials, like arsenic, with benefits to waterways. Coppola's not aligned with Natura Solve, but they plan to discuss projects next week.

NAA participants started two LinkedIn groups, #algaebloomremediation and #OurWaters, where they will post updates, opportunities to impact clean water initiatives, and potential funding sources.

Increased attendance included water treatment and solution companies and Federal employees and is expected to grow with added interest in the sector. The next NAA session is Feb. 9, including Corydon Coppola of Flo-Water, LLC, Jennifer Mitchell of Natura Solve, and special guests, to be announced in the coming week.
