Microcystis and water filtration

If algae on lakes make you squeamish about drinking water from your tap, there’s hope for you. A new water filtration method has been found to remove a toxic chemical released by microcystis, a blue green algae that’s found in your local lakes and rivers. This toxin can cause liver damage among other problems. It’s a teeny microbe that slips through water filtration membranes of even the most discriminating.

Scientists say activated carbon coupled with these uber membranes can stop the ugly blue mess as well as herbicides and pesticides from your drinking water. More research needs to be done, but once it is proven effective in water filtration plants, it may be coming to a city near you! Here’s where the theme “think green” is not a good thing.
