CYANOCOST comments on the proposed revision of the DWD, regarding microcystins.

The Steering Group (SG) of CYANOCOST has submitted comments to the European Commission about the inclusion of MC-LR in the proposed revision of the Drinking Water Directive (DWD). Based on the facts presented in this response the SG proposes the inclusion of all microcystins in the Drinking Water Guideline in the following manner: the reference to the parameter “microcystin-LR” in the proposed Drinking Water Directive should be replaced by “sum of all detected microcystin variants”. The parametric value should stay at 1.0 µg/l.

You can read the CYANOCOST comments in the EC webpage (download the file with feedback).
