Final Report - CYANOIT (Identification and toxic potential of cyanoprokaryota in the Bulgarian water bodies. Environmental health risks.)

Project ID: 210514
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

The CYANOIT project, which was funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme, provided useful information towards the implementation of a surface water monitoring system, necessary as part of Bulgaria’s obligations for the application of the European Water Framework Directive. The project aimed to study the cyanoprokaryota diversity and their toxic potential in selected Bulgarian freshwater dams that were used as sources of drinking water, to evaluate the associated risks and to develop an effective screening test system for the presence of cyanotoxins.

This final activity report provides an overview of CYANOIT objectives and major achievements. The document refers to the numerous parameters that were analysed and summarises the obtained conclusions and recommendations. Finally, the impacts of CYANOIT are highlighted.
