In Proceedings, AWWA Water Quality Technology Conference, New Orleans, LA, November 16 - 20, 2014. American Water Works Association, Denver, CO, ,, (2014).

Impact/Purpose:

Dissemination of USEPA research to a national audience of regulators, utility managers and practicing engineers.

Description:

Harmful algal blooms (HABs), and their associated toxins, in fresh water lakes and reservoirs are drawing the attention of utilities and state regulators nation-wide. Recognizing the potential health and economic consequences, the US Environmental Protection Agency, in partnership with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) and participating utilities, began sampling the raw water and treatment trains of Lake Erie drinking water treatment facilitiesTrack seasonal bloom development Follow the propagation of cyanobacterial cells through the entire treatment process Follow the propagation and control of toxins through the treatment process using an enzyme-linked immune substrate (ELISA) assay Quantify other dissolved constituents associated with bloom activity, including nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, and phosphate
