Join us for this live Webinar | Friday, July 27th, 2018 | 2:00 PM ET

Algal blooms have the potential to negatively impact potable water treatment works, increasing maintenance and reducing efficiency to drive up costs. Algal organisms and their byproducts can also cause objectionable taste and odor for the drinking water consumer. On a more serious level, some algal species create toxins with serious human health risks, making the utility’s product unfit for human consumption.

Impacts on treatment works will be discussed along with an overview of treatment options ranging from basic to advanced treatment barriers. Global example case studies will be reviewed including pretreatment barrier and oxidation system additions at WTPs in locations such as Bellingham, Washington and Waco, Texas, USA, and Sung-Nam City and Siheung City, South Korea.
