Project Number # 1138
There is a need to have a clear and consistent approach to assessing the efficacy and performance of the growing number of algal bloom management technologies emerging on the market. Often technologies are offered by suppliers with the promise that they will solve algal bloom issues. However, there are a number of factors that, if poorly understood and addressed, can result in performance being unsatisfactory for water utility needs.
