Compliance with guideline removal targets for Cryptosporidium which do not provide any credit for the inactivation of oocysts through wastewater treatment processes can considerably increase the cost of providing recycled water. Here we present the application of an integrated assay to quantify both oocyst numbers and infectivity levels after various(More)
The presence of toxigenic cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) in drinking water reservoirs poses a risk to human and animal health worldwide. Guidelines and health alert levels have been issued in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines for three major toxins, which are therefore the subject of routine monitoring: microcystin, cylindrospermopsin and(More)
AIMS Benthic Cyanobacteria produce toxic and odorous compounds similar to their planktonic counterparts, challenging the quality of drinking water supplies. The biofilm that benthic algae and other micro-organisms produce is a complex and protective matrix. Monitoring to determine the abundance and identification of Cyanobacteria, therefore, relies on(More)
Cyanobacterial blooms represent a health hazard worldwide due to their toxic potential. The CyanoSurvey project was set up to evaluate the risk associated with the presence of toxigenic cyanobacteria in Australian drinking water reservoirs. It mainly targeted members of the following genera: Dolichospermum, Sphaerospermopsis, Chrysosporum,(More)
