A Call-Out from the Alliance for the Great Lakes, a citizens’ watchdog group for our shared waterbodies
Posted November 22nd, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Every year, communities and businesses around Lake Erie worry about toxic algal blooms. They wonder if the algae will:
- Make their drinking water unsafe, like it did in 2014
- Put the 117,000 jobs connected to Lake Erie at risk
- Stop people from enjoying boating, swimming, and visiting Lake Erie shorelines
Less than two years ago, officials from Ohio, Michigan and Ontario pledged to reduce the runoff pollution flowing into Lake Erie by 40%. It was a historic moment and a goal that would significantly improve the lake’s health. But meeting that goal will not be easy.
