The management of large volumes of water in dams and potable water supplies is a perennial problem for water managers. Frequently these water impoundments are subject to run- off of fertilizers and other nutrients from agricultural land, or from storm water and other sources. These excess nutrients combined with the relatively high water temperatures experienced in Australia to produce the perfect breeding ground for algae. Algal blooms are frequently experienced. Algal blooms often degrade water in dams and potable water supplies.
Offensive smells, low dissolved oxygen and blue green algae
Some species of algae release toxins (cyanobacteria). All blooms decrease dissolved oxygen in the water which in turn effects fish within the impoundment. The visual amenity frequently declines and there is often an offensive smell associated with the blooms. Constant monitoring is essential and attacking the algae before it turns into a major bloom is essential. Coptrol is ideal for this task.
