Harmful to bothman as animal

Blue-green algae are unfortunately a growing problem in our parks and ornamental gardens. The warming, often stagnant water provides an ideal breeding ground for these algae, resulting in smelly water, lack of oxygen, mosquito infestations and sometimes even toxic blue-green algae. This is not only unpleasant, but can also be harmful to humans and animals.

What is blue-green algae?

Blue-green algae, or cyanobacteria, are microscopic organisms found in freshwater. When these algae are present in large quantities, it can be a sign of poor water quality. When the algae die, they turn blue, hence the name. Some types of blue-green algae produce toxins that can be dangerous to humans and animals. Swimming in contaminated water can lead to health problems, especially in children who unknowingly swallow water, and in pets who drink contaminated water or lick their stained fur.

Consequences and measures

The presence of blue-green algae can lead to swimming bans, a measure that is increasingly in the news. This is not only inconvenient for recreation, but can also have economic consequences for parks and ornamental gardens that rely on visitors.

Improving water quality

Improving water quality is essential to tackle the problems caused by blue-green algae. Movement and aeration of water play a crucial role here. This contributes to better biodegradation of organic matter and improves oxygenation of the water. Mixing water layers and adding oxygen significantly improves water quality, lowers water temperature, and reduces the chances of algae developing.
