Toxic Algae Screening
During certain times of the year some lakes break out in algae blooms which results in a takeover of cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are organisms that can produce toxic substances, causing people(and dogs if they ingest the water) to become sick.
However, not all types of cyanobacteria produce toxins. Nevertheless, the MPCA warns about these harmful and toxic algae blooms. If you ever spot an algal bloom, it is best to stay away.
We have the expertise and knowledge to determine whether this spot contains cyanobacterial toxins by scheduling a consultation , or testing the samples you bring in to us.
