A method for treating water is provided. The method includes feeding gas through a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) jet device having an electrode and a ground electrode disposed in water comprising at least one organic toxin derived from a biological organism to generate a cavity in the water, and powering the electrode such that a plasma jet is generated in the cavity. The plasma jet interacts with the water to generate oxidizing agents that oxidize and decompose organic toxins in the water.
