Abstract

This project will gather and present case studies illustrating drinking water utility experiences with, and responses to, cyanobacterial and cyanotoxin events. The information gathered through the case studies will be synthesized into short, actionable steps utilities can take to both help prevent these events and address them when they occur. A user-friendly, intereactive web tool will be developed to enable utilities to provide effective and quick responses to cyanobacterial and cyanotoxin events.
