The use of ultrasound as an alternative treatment has been the subject of research since the 1970s and treatment units are now commercially available. However, the efficacy of ultrasound treatment has been questioned by some utilities.

The aim of this project is to develop a novel, ultrasound-based treatment technology for the control of cyanobacteria in reservoirs and lakes.
