Algae monitoring of drinking water reservoir -

by microLAN On-line Biomonitoring Systems     based in Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS

Due to green algae problems in the water reservoir of a drinking water treatment plant, the ALGcontrol was installed to continuously monitor the algae concentrations and possible toxic blue green algae blooms. During almost 4 months the ALGcontrol measured the total chlorophyll and cyano chlorophyll concentrations of the water reservoir. In order to be able to compare these results, second off-line controls were carried out using the ISO 10260 chlorophyll-a quantification (extraction into ethanol, spectrophotometric detection at 665 and 750 nm). The results of the off-line standard lab method show a good correlation with the measurements of the ALGcontrol. The good correlation can be verified as well at high as at low concentrations of total chlorophyll.
