Development of aquatic biomonitoring models for surface waters used for drinking water supply

Abstract

Given the need for continued quality control of surface waters used for the production of drinking water by state-of-the-art bioassays and biological early warning systems, the objective of the present thesis was to validate and improve some of the bioassays and biological early warning systems used for quality control of surface water. Although there is a decline in the (geno)toxicity of surface waters over the years as observed for example for the water from the River Rhine over last decades, there is still a need for continued quality control. Due to the lower (geno)toxicity, bioassays with increased sensitivity are needed
