Optimising water treatment practices for the removal of Anabaena circinalis and its associated metabolites, geosmin and saxitoxins
Journal of Water and Health
The cyanobacterium Anabaena circinalis has the ability to co-produce geosmin and saxitoxins, compounds which can compromise the quality of drinking water. This study provides pertinent information in optimising water treatment practices for the removal of geosmin and saxitoxins. In particular, it demonstrates that pre-oxidation using potassium permanganate could be applied at the head of water treatment plants without releasing intracellular geosmin and saxitoxins from A. circinalis.doi:10.2166/wh.2009.075 pmid:19590122 fatcat:ep7pe2h3dzfjbe4ynmtfhhmoge
