Study of odor-producing Planktothrix sp. in Miyun Reservoir, regarding the ecological niche identification, regulation and control strategy

As the most important surface water source for Beijing, Miyun Reservoir has been suffered from taste & odor (T&O) problem since 2003, which has been a serious threat to the drinking water safety of Beijing. The present research mainly focus on the …

MIB-producing cyanobacteria (Planktothrix sp.) in a drinking water reservoir: Distribution and odor producing potential

The production of odorant 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) in water bodies by *Planktothrix* sp. have not been understood very well. Through a four-year investigation in Miyun Reservoir, a huge mesotrophic drinking water reservoir known to have the MIB …

Algal growth dynamics in drinking water reservoir and the driving force

After the water flow into the reservoir from the river, as the hydrology characteristic changes, including water resitence time increasing, water transparecny increasing etc., the reservoir will facillate algal growth; at the same time, the water …
