Blue Algae

Treatment of Microcystin

It’s that time of year again, many area lakes and ponds test for the presence of Microcystin.

Microcystin, (otherwise known as blue-algae)  as defined by the EPA, “Microcystins are toxins produced by cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are also known as blue-green algae and are ubiquitous in surface water when conditions are favorable for growth and formation of algal blooms.)

Often, we receive questions regarding the treatment for microcystin once it is identified in a sample.

The EPA offers many options with respect to treatment of Microcystin.

The cost of Microcystin analysis is $40.00 at Midwest Laboratories.
