I worked in Majuro on ADB job for water
Please provide more details.
Simply put - where do they get the nitrate for the
algal growth.  

300 people = say =>75kg of nitrate + plus agriculture
People on septic tanks?? or seawater flushing??
Green grass lawns anywhere??
?Any previous military operations on island??

Follow the nitrate.
