Cyanotoxin Management Plan Template and Example Plans

The Cyanotoxin Management Plan Template and Example Plans provide a framework for states, tribes and public water systems to develop their own system-specific cyanotoxin management plans. The template includes potential steps for preparing for a bloom and mitigating the effects of a bloom including monitoring, treatment and communication activities. EPA partnered with five utilities to develop system-specific cyanotoxin management plans that provide examples of how water systems are managing cyanotoxin risks.

The Cyanotoxins Management Plan Template is available in Word format.
