Goal and objectives of the project
  • Setting up the model for removal of nitrogen, phosphorous and toxic cyanobacteria by mean of ecological bioengineering  using aquatic plants
  • Proposed solutions for integrated water management of Nui Coc reservoir for water supply, agriculture and tourism.
Main results

Theorerical results

  • There are data on water quality, especially the composition of microalgae and Cyanobacteria, including some potentially  toxic Cyanobarteria.
  • The variation in composition and density of microalgae and Cyanobarteria. Data on the status of water resources. Data on the composition and quality of the waste in the basin.

Applied results

  • Proposed solutions to the integrated water resources management to reduce water pollution and generating toxic cyanobacteria.
  • Using of the MIKE model to predict changes in reservoir water quality.

Further research on species composition variation of toxic cyanobacteria Microcystis genus and their toxins in the Nui Coc reservoir to indicate  the correlation of the variation of species composition and their toxins with environmental factors.
