IDEM Microcystin Report

What are Microcystins?

Microcystins are commonly found in freshwater throughout the world including lakes in Indiana. They are produced by many types of cyanobacteria including Microcystis, Dolichospermum, and Planktothrix which are commonly found in Indiana. Microcystin is a hepatotoxin so they primarily affect liver function but can also affect the kidney and reproductive system.
