It’s one of the signs of summer in downtown Stockton, as well as elsewhere on the Delta. The green slime. Also known as cyanobacteria or algae, it spreads rapidly through the hot summer months, creating toxins that can be harmful to humans and animals.
While there is no way to rid our waterways of this algae, there are ways to mitigate it.
Cyndy Green has been intrigued by news since she got a toy printing press as a six year old. She switched to visual story telling at the age of 12 with her first still camera and moved to broadcasting after an internship in 1974. After 28 years in broadcast news and another 8 teaching broadcasting, she still can’t live without a camera in hand and an editing computer nearby, so in retirement she continues creating visual stories.
