Abstract

Develops a multi-barrier management plan to control taste-and-odor problems. Implements several algae control measures to reduce other algae-related problems such as potential health-related problems caused by algal biotoxins. Develops proactive controls to minimize the growth of taste-and-odor producing algae. Also develops responsive controls to treat taste-and-odor compounds if proactive measures are not effective.
