Citation:

Dugan, N. Cyanobacterial Treatment Options: Permanganate and Powdered Activated Carbon. EPA Small Systems Webinar Series, Cincinnati, OH, June 27, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

The EPA Small Systems Webinar Presentations allow the dissemination of the latest Agency guidance and research to a large geographically dispersed audience while minimizing taxpayer expense

Description:

This presentation will begin with a brief overview of drinking water treatment options for cyanobacteria and their toxins. The treatment discussion will focus on the impacts of permanganate addition to suspensions of toxin-producing Microcystis aeruginosa, followed by powdered activated carbon (PAC) addition.
