Testing Lake Coeur d' Alene

Season 2 Episode 2 | 6m 38s

Tailings from more than a hundred years of mining have inhibited the growth of blue-green algae in Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Scientific teams from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and the State of Idaho use all the available tools to study the lake’s water quality.
