In the summer of 2014, toxic bacteria in Lake Erie forced some 400,000 people in the Toledo area (including several communities in southeast Michigan) to stop bathing in or drinking their tap water. Although the past few years have not been as bad, farm runoff and other factors have led to toxic cyanobacteria blooms in western Lake Erie every summer since then. Will voluntary farm restrictions be enough to solve this problem and if not, what else needs to be done?
Join Michigan Radio’s Lester Graham as Issues & Ale travels to Toledo to talk about the safety of Lake Erie’s water.
Issues and Ale is an event series from Michigan Radio designed to engage people in conversations about important issues facing our area...in an informal atmosphere. Stop by, have a drink, and join in the conversation.
