Document Type: Monograph
The National Centre for Toxic and Persistent Substances (TAPS) has routinely collated information regarding cyanobacterial monitoring and management of incidents from the Regions since 1990, and data have been summarised into annual reports (NRA, 1990b, 1991. 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995). This duty has been taken over by EHS, Nutrients Section. Information from the monitoring programmes is collated by Regional Algal Contacts located in each of the eight Regions of the Agency, and sent to EHS for reporting via a completed annual questionnaire. Details of the monitoring programmes are available in the Monitoring and Management of Blue-green Algal Incidents Policy, available from the Algaf Scientist, EHS and National Algal Contacts. This report describes the work that has been carried out by the Agency on monitoring and management of cyanobacteria! incidents between 1995-1997, and relates it to past years.
