Managing blue green algae

The microscope will be on blue-green algae at a one-day seminar in Launceston next month.

Run by the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Water Quality and Treatment, in conjunction with the Australian Water Association and the Environment Division of DTAE, the Managing Cyanobacteria seminar will be of benefit to water resource and environmental managers, public health authorities and treatment facility operators and managers.

It will be held at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Inveresk on Wednesday, 4 July, from 9.30am-3pm.

Organisers says that while there are no instant fixes for cyanobacteria, there are a number of management tools to reduce cyanobacterial abundance in water bodies, including drinking water reservoirs.

The seminar will also present findings on treatment to remove cyanobacterial toxins, taste and odours from drinking water supplies.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

Registration is being managed by the AWA Tasmanian branch and should be forwarded to Rachel-Ann Martin by Friday 29 June.
