08 Mar How does the Mount Isa Water Board treat blue-green algae?
Posted at 20:26h in
Following a significant blue-green algae bloom in Clear Water Lagoon, Lake Moondarra and Lake Julius in late 2013, the Mount Isa Water Board installed a filtration plant as an interim measure to filter all water supplied to Mount Isa City Council customers. This filtration effectively removes all blue-green algae from the water before oxidation and then supplied to Mount Isa City Council. New, permanent micro-filtration treatment plant was introduced in March 2015 which provides an appropriate level of assurance of the quality of water supplied to Mount Isa City Council.
