Toledo’s “Perfect Storm” Continues

July 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Are the Algal Blooms of Late Spring and Summer a New Normal for Lake Erie Water?

As memories of Toledo’s 2014 water crisis fade, this presentation reviews the circumstances that came together as a “perfect storm” of algal bloom which overwhelmed our water purification system. What changes have been made in Toledo’s water purification process? Are these really effective if nothing else changes? Have phosphorus levels decreased? Have agricultural practices changed? Or do we accept that algal blooms will continue to plague Lake Erie into the future?

The work of regional activist-organizations will be described in raising awareness, creating effective public policy, and initiating community dialog as we work together for a common cause—the safety of our drinking water.
