Here's a fun way to test your knowledge of the CSLAP process.  See how well you do on these quiz questions.  Careful - sometimes more than one answer is correct - can you find the best answer?  

An interactive form of the quiz is now available on the NYS DEC website. If you take the quiz there, you can tell us that you've taken it.  We will also look for areas where we can improve our instruction and protocols.  Find the quiz here.  Other training material is available on the same page.  

Choose any of these quiz sections to test your skills.  One link has the questions, and the other the answers.  No peeking before you choose your final answer!

At these summits, nation-leading experts will work with local steering committees to begin development of tailored action plans to address the causes of algal blooms in the twelve priority waterbodies across the state. The action plans developed for each waterbody will be used to guide the development and implementation of priority projects, including new monitoring and treatment technologies. The action plans will be complete by the end of May and the lessons learned through these action plans will be applied to other impacted waterbodies.
