Groups hope to clean Ohio's largest inland lake



Published: Fri, April 9, 2010 @ 11:15 a.m.

ST. MARYS, Ohio (AP) — Community leaders are raising money to help clean up pollution in Ohio’s largest inland lake.

Residents and community supporters around Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio say water quality problems have contributed to a drop in visitors and the closings of two marinas, and have hurt home sales along the lake.

They’re trying to get enough money to buy aerators and sediment collectors to improve the water quality.

Ohio park officials said last spring that toxic algae posed a health risk for swimmers and boaters.

Local activists say fertilizers and manure from nearby farms have contaminated the lake that sits between Toledo and Dayton.

State officials lifted the water advisories this week but those warnings could return with warmer temperatures.

Would be nice if state officials took a look in Englewood where there is a large lake which feeds into the river where the well field pulls in water from. The city put in a turbo grow plant next to the lake and the fish nearly have died off, the ducks / geese refuse to swim on it and the plant life is dying off near the shore lines. This lake is in the south area off East Wenger Road. Posted by Danny who used to fish there.
