University of Toledo forms water task force
A university in Northwest Ohio says it’s forming a group to help government leaders deal with the ongoing algae threat on Lake Erie.
The University of Toledo says the group will act as a resource and provide information about research that’s been done on the lake’s water quality.
The university already has a research center on Lake Erie that regularly monitors the water.
The move comes some four weeks after Toledo was forced to issue a do-not-drink advisory for 400,000 people after toxins from algae on the lake contaminated the city’s water supply.
