Exploring Algae Blooms and their effect on the Great Lakes.

Residents of Toledo, Ohio are still worried about drinking their water after toxic algae got into the water system in August causing a shutdown for two days. Legislators and scientists are scrambling to find solutions to the growing problem of algae blooms since it’s an issue that affects the entire Great Lakes region. Lewis Wallace reports for Front and Center that the pollution actually starts far upstream and it’s not just about the algae. Photo Courtesy of Flickr/ NASA GODDARD PHOTO AND VIDEO
