Report from S&T Project 19242: Algae Resistant Linings for Canals and Other Water Resource Structures

Reclamation and QCBID teamed together to test various integral concrete admixtures and topically applied sealer to test their effectiveness at mitigating algae growth. Concrete panels were tested over two irrigation seasons. The integral products trialed did not appear to mitigate algae growth. The topically applied products appeared to have an effect on algae growth but should be tested on in-service full-size panels over multiple season.
