Lake Erie Declared Impaired

Joann Mead - March 26, 2018

The western part of Lake Erie has been declared as "impaired" by Ohio Gov. Kasich which will lead to tighter regulations for agriculture and others that release nutrients into the lake.  Lake Erie has experienced massive algae blooms in recent years and environmentalists have sued to have the lake declared impaired.  Ohio was the last holdout.  A couple of the newspaper articles about this are http://www.toledoblade.com/State/2018/03/22/Kasich-administration-declares-Lake-Erie-open-waters-as-impaired.html and https://patch.com/ohio/cleveland/parts-lake-erie-are-impaired-wont-change-much
