I received this information from the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association (LECBA). Members of OGF may be interested in attending one of these workshops.
Lake Erie Harmful Algal Blooms Workshops
March 16 in Toledo, March 30 in Columbus
Best practices and legal tools to combat harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie will be the focus of two workshops, on March 16 in Toledo and March 30 in Columbus, sponsored by the University of Toledo College of Law and Ohio Sea Grant. The half-day workshops are free and open to the public.
Harmful algal blooms, toxin-producing algae that form during the summer, are an increasingly severe problem in Lake Erie. Triggered primarily by excess phosphorus, they adversely impact aquatic life and human health as well as recreation, tourism, fishing and property values. These workshops will feature experts from law, science and government addressing ways to reduce phosphorus loading to Lake Erie and its tributaries from key Ohio sources.
The workshops will be held March 16 at the University of Toledo College of Law and March 30 at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Assembly Center. More information about the workshops is available at http://law.utoledo.edu/ligl/habs_workshops.htm
