Lake Erie is one of Ohio’s crown jewels in terms of economic impact, natural resource value and water supply. Lake Erie is a source of drinking water for 23 Ohio public water systems serving approximately 2.6 million customers. Unfortunately, recreational and drinking water uses have been impaired by harmful algal blooms (HABs) in recent years. Ohio EPA is making funds available to enhance drinking water testing and treatment, as well as reduce nutrient levels in wastewater treatment plant discharges.
Ohio EPA Introduces New Harmful Algal Bloom Advisory System
A new multi-tiered advisory system to notify the public if microcystin, and other compounds produced by blue-green algae, is detected in treated drinking water at local public water systems throughout the state.
