  • Algae bloom reaches the Maumee River

    Algae bloom reaches the Maumee River

    Wednesday, September 20 2017 12:58 PM EDT2017-09-20 16:58:19 GMT

    For the past 2 months we've been tracking the harmful algae bloom on Lake Erie, but in the past 24 hours it has moved into the Maumee River.  Thanks to calm weather this move has been possible. While widespread algae on the river is not likely, scum along the shores is possible through Toledo. The warm weather the next few days means the bloom is likely to continue. Right now the bloom is not an immediate danger to the Toledo water intake.  Credit: Pete Hustwayte ...
