This study presents the drinking water supply system quality analysis in the context of the presence and distribution of eukaryotic assemblage, specifically the presence of algae in 10 specific sites (water treatment plants and fountains) from the Danube Delta. The analysis comes with a new approach based on stakeholders involvement and understanding of the new emerging problems generated by the presence of algae in the water supply system. In order to upgrade the water quality it is needed an
