This article discussed potential long term impacts of cyanobacteria/toxic blue green algae in potable water reservoirs. While it has long been know that these micro-organisms produce toxins that can impact human health and safety, there may be longer term impacts as well. We will be following this and want to remind people that we have tools to proactively deal with these problems. http://www.miller-mccune.com/health/was-lou-gehrigs-als-caused-by-tap-water-38804/
Blue Water Satellite technology helps us detect, quantify and map cyanobacteria in lake and reservoir systems. Phoslock is a new technology that removes phosphorus from lake and reservoir systems changing the nitrogen/phosphorus ratio and limiting the carrying capacity of a lake to support toxic algae growth.
