As cyanobacteria blooms become more prevalent, utilities need improved guidance on early detection programs and source water control strategies. To meet this need, this project will review available published information, survey utilities regarding practices, evaluate existing and innovative technologies for monitoring and treatment, and synthesize this information into a guidance document and decision trees utility managers can use to address potential harmful algal bloom events.
