July 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Toxin-producing cyanobacteria blooms are a growing concern for water utilities that use surface water supplies across the country. To make informed decisions about how to limit exposure to cyanotoxins, water utilities need to understand (1) cyanotoxins occur; (2) their presence in a given water source, (3) management strategies to reduce cyanotoxins in source waters, and (4) treatments to prevent cyanotoxins from reaching customers.
The first presentation by Ms. Tricia Kilgore will review Beaufort Jasper Water and Sewer Authority’s experience with algae blooms, taste and odor, the development of an algae monitoring plan for two drinking water reservoirs, and algae bloom treatment in the reservoir and in the plants. The second presentation by Dr. Erik Rosenfeldt provides insight on which techniques are effective for addressing cyanotoxins present within intact cyanobacteria cells (intracellular), and which techniques are effective for removing cyanotoxins that are dissolved in the water (extracellular).
