Microcystin Report for
August 19, 2022
“Here are this week’s assay results for Microcystin levels at tested public beach sites. Samples were collected August 17th, 2022. Results meet the assay kit’s QC criteria.
The U.S. EPA and CT DPH currently advise a Microcystin threshold of 8.0 parts per billion (ppb; µg/L) for recreational waters.
