Case Study: water-link – Safeguarding Drinking Water in Belgium

water-link, providing drinking water in northern Belgium, faced challenges with excessive blue-green algae growth in buffer basins around Lier and Duffel. Sudden and extensive algae development caused filtration issues in the drinking water process.

To prevent algae from entering the drinking water process, a 175m-long Ecobarrier Solid Flotation Boom (ESFB) was installed in summer 2020. The barrier, 1,020mm high with a 700mm draught and 320mm freeboard, remains effective even in waves.

The ESFB successfully prevented algae from interfering with drinking water production. Depending on wind direction, algae gathered on one side of the barrier, allowing easy removal. This barrier ensures uninterrupted drinking water supply, showcasing its effectiveness during the summer of 2020.
