System description

A thorough understanding of the system – from the catchment to the point of exposure – is the basis for analysing hazards and assessing risks when developing a concept for the assessment and control of the cyanotoxin risk or a complete Water Safety Plan (WSP). The compilation of necessary information can be decisive for the success of your concept, since the team can only make the right decisions with the necessary comprehensive information.

The information required has to be gathered at different places, e.g. information about the catchment is available from the competent authorities including those which are responsible for the authorization of facilities, buildings and activities in the catchment.

Data about the water bodies can be obtained from the water boards, and for information about the water treatment process in use, technical managers and also technical operators and foremen with their in-depth knowledge of the facilities, can be consulted.
