Abstract: The objective of this survey was to compile the more commonly implemented methods of algal control and management. This information is summarized in an extensive table developed from the literature as well as through communications with individuals in various State agencies. References in the annotated bibliography are appropriate for consideration by individuals desiring direction in developing algal control programs. However, conclusions and recommendations drawn from this survey need to be viewed as preliminary, since the information compiled herein does not provide a sufficient basis for detailed discrimination of the relative efficacy of the individual techniques identified. Therefore, the discussion of these techniques is necessarily generalized. This report is intended as a baseline of existing information for use in evaluating algal control methods and management policies applicable to Corps impoundments.
