Project Description

Blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) can bloom in marine and freshwater and cause additional problems for water utilities when they produce toxins and taste and odour compounds. This project consolidated a wealth of knowledge and experience in the management of cyanobacteria into an electronic / online international, practical, and user-friendly manual. It includes information about conducting risk assessments, developing monitoring programmes and incident management strategies, and management procedures to mitigate the risk posed by cyanotoxins.
