Fact sheets for hydrobiological monitoring networks

In 2011, Bureau Waardenburg, in collaboration with the Waterschap Hunze en Aa's and Omegam, carried out research into blue green algae blooms. The Waterschap is responsible for the annual monitoring of recreational (swimming) waters and for the research into the blooms of blue green algae.

Samples were taken from waters where blue green algae was thought to be present. These samples were analysed for toxins at the laboratory of the Waterschap. We also undertook Quick Scan<input title="Save and close document" src="http://buwa.nl/typo3/clear.gif" name="_saveandclosedok" class="c-inputButton" type="image" /> counts of blue green algae. During the summer of 2011, we carried out emergency sampling where analysis and reporting is carried out within 24 hours.
