Lake Allemands and Bayou Fortier top the charts for Louisiana 2023 HABs season, having shore to shore bloom in excess of 2 million cells per 100 ml. The 2023 Lake Erie HAB of similar concentration produced a microcystin toxin value 85 X the limit for recreational water suggested by the EPA. No test values are published for microcystin test values for Lake Allemands or Bayou Fortier.
