Abstract

Develops chemical and engineering data and criteria necessary to assess algal toxin treatment for a variety of raw water qualities and locations. Characterizes various treatment technologies including ozone, advanced oxidation, powdered activated carbon, granular activated carbon, biological treatment, and membranes. Also develops implementation and cost data for those technologies. Tailored Collaboration partner: City of Cocoa (Fla.). Published in 2010.
