The green- and blue-colored algae that grows out of control and often washes up on the shoreline of Lake Erie is not only unsightly but also harmful to many species, including humans.

In Ohio, the western basin of Lake Erie has experienced some of the worst harmful algal blooms in recent years. The blooms have been detected this summer, as they were last summer when the area saw a harmful bloom of record size. In August 2014, cyanobacteria from a harmful algal bloom contaminated the city of Toledo’s water supply and residents were forced to find alternative water sources.
