Algal Growth Potential Tests as known from literature cannot simply be applied in water quality management in the Netherlands; adaptation to the Dutch situation is necessary. Points of research were: pretreatment of the water to be tested, species of test algae, conditions of the cultivation, monitoring of the algae growth.
