DENVER — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued health advisories for cyanotoxins microcystins and cylindrospermopsin, according to AWWA.org.
“These non-regulatory levels are levels below which there are expected to be no health impacts,” shared the article.
EPA has established different advisory levels based on a person’s age (below six years and above six years), noted the article. The website shows the levels are based on 10 days of exposure:
