New website informs public about phosphorus in Lake Erie

(Toledo News Now) -

In an effort to continue to keep you informed about our water a new website has been developed.

LakeErieAlgae.com shows the public where the phosphorus that feeds Lake Erie is coming from.

The website does not have an up to date water dashboard, but rather a number of facts that will help clear up some of the rumors.

The National Center for Water Quality Research is responsible for the website, which includes a history of Lake Erie troubles, a short video of research scientist Dr. Laura Johnson, and other content that dives deeper into specific aspects of the research done, including the different types of algal blooms and the differences between point and non-point source pollution.

The site also shows the role of the region's weather, soil and agricultural practices in boosting the phosphorus loads in Lake Erie.
