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. Click here to read more.
Please welcome newly appointed Deputy Port Captain Bill Lehner for Sandusky, Ohio (E-16)! Here's a brief bio on his nautical endeavours:
I have enjoyed boating since my preteen years as a “frequent” family activity. I am proud to have carried the love of the water on to our three grown children and soon-to-be six grandchildren. Karen and I have owned small sailboats (22, 27, and 32-foot) for the majority of our 48 years of marriage. Cruising areas have varied from local lakes and rivers, in my early years, to charters in the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Virgin Islands, The Dry Tortugas, Cuba, and ten fantastic days on a 45-foot Magic in the Greek Isles. Karen and I have enjoyed annual trips to the Lake Huron / Port Huron area. I have also participated in the delivery of several boats from Port Clinton to Philadelphia, and Long Island.
