Aquatechnex biologists have deployed the first of many algae monitoring buoys for our clients in Southern California. This system measures a number of water quality parameters and reports via onboard cellular system every 15 minutes. Two of the key parameters measured are Chlorophyll a with provides a measure of algae biomass and Phycocyanin which is a pigment that is unique to Blue Green Algae species. Blue green algae or cyanobacteria are toxin producers that cause significant problems in our nations lakes and reservoirs.
Every day we examine conditions in these lakes remotely. When we see Chlorophyll a or Phycocyanin levels increase, we mobilize treatment teams to target and control that growth before it becomes a full blown bloom or toxin producing event. This allows us to be more proactive and responsive in our mission to keep your lakes free from toxin producing conditions.
