BlooWater

Supporting tools for the integrated management of drinking water reservoirs contaminated by Cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins. Cyanobacteria, known as blue-green algae, under favourable environmental conditions, can quickly multiply and form blooms in water and release toxic secondary metabolites during their senescence and death. The presence of toxins from Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in drinking water reservoirs may represent serious health risks for the human population. It is necessary to plan effective strategies of risk assessment and management considering all the possible routes of exposure for the human populations. More
