CyanoTOX® Version 3.0
is an oxidation calculator designed to help utilities evaluate how treatment adjustments (such as pH, oxidant dose, and contact time) may influence degradation of individual cyanotoxins and some groups of cyanotoxins. The latest version maintains the ability to model the oxidative removal of extracellular toxins under various conditions (3 toxins, 5 oxidants, pH, temp, etc). New in this version is an additional module to model intracellular and extracellular toxins throughout a water treatment plant. New capabilities include release of intracellular toxins, three zones of oxidation, PAC carbon adsorption, settling of solids, biofiltration/GAC and other features.
The USACE Invasive Species Leadership Team in collaboration with the Aquatic Plant Management Society, North American Lake Management Society, and the American Water Works Association held a series of webinars in June-July 2021 that summarized the latest research and technical information on management strategies to encourage better integration and facilitation in the protection of drinking water.
