Why use CyanoLakes?


Show More

Cyanobacteria blooms significantly increase operational risk by increasing water treatment costs and pose a serious human health threat. You can significantly reduce risk from cyanobacteria blooms in raw water sources with near real-time spatial information.


Monitoring remote and large water bodies is logistically challenging, time consuming and expensive. Lab samples take days or weeks to process, and it’s easy to miss events in large reservoirs sampled weekly or monthly. Real-time instruments deployed in lakes are easily lost or vandalised, and drones can be lost and pose a fire hazard.


CyanoLakes offers the first service based entirely on satellite remote sensing that significantly improves your knowledge or your raw water sources, enabling you to effectively respond to the risk posed by cyanobacteria blooms. No expensive instruments, no ground data required. Save costs and more effectively deploy your limited monitoring resources.


Here are three reasons why we think you should use CyanoLakes:

1. Reduce risks from cyanobacteria blooms in your waterbodies

2. Supplement your existing chlorophyll-a and other measurements in near real-time

3. Protect the public with recreational advisories


Show More
  • Enhance routine monitoring and reporting
  • Achieve compliance with monitoring legislation
  • Reduce long-term monitoring costs
  • Prevent, detect and manage health risks
  • Improve decision making
  • Improve strategies to manage health risks
  • Improve the health and safety of recreational water users

Service availability

CyanoLakes services are based on satellite remotely sensed data. Satellite coverage and monitoring is dependent on snow cover, cloud cover and water body size (among other things). The latency (delivery time) and availability of data may be interrupted from time to time through scheduled maintenance or unexpected interruptions of satellite transmission. While CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd warrants to provide you with excellent customer support and service, service interruptions may occur due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control. The customer indemnifies and holds CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd and its employees harmless against any loss or damages that may result from service interruption.

Data policy

The customer will become the owner of the data downloaded via the API with full rights to its use. The API will be for exclusive use by the paying client and its authorized representatives.

Terms and Conditions

CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd. is not liable for any loss or damages resulting from decisions made on the basis of the information it provides. All information should be considered preliminary until verified by field measurements. Prices are provided for reference only, and are subject to change without notice. Prices are conditional upon customer assessment. E&OE.
