AWWA and WaterRF Free Cyanotoxins Guide Now Available
April 24, 2015
The American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Research Foundation (WaterRF) have released a new guide to help water utility managers detect and control cyanotoxins from harmful algal blooms entitled, “A Water Utility Manager’s Guide to Cyanotoxins.” The guide addresses cyanotoxin occurrence, source water management, and treatment strategies. It is presented in a simple Q&A format, and is available for free download from both the AWWA and WRF web sites. A more technical companion document is also in development to be published this summer, after EPA releases its new health advisory levels and analytical metthods for microcystin and cylindrospermopsin next month.
