Cleaning Lake Erie
Ohio's new budget will spend nearly $200 million to clean the state's waters, including the polluted western basin of Lake Erie. But will it make any difference? Will it stop the annual pea-green blanket of harmful algal blooms that puts drinking water at risk and ruins the lake for recreation?
State Rep. Paula Hicks-Hudson (D., Toledo) will speak about Statehouse plans and answer questions at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Toledo Yacht Club.
Formerly Toledo's mayor, Ms. Hicks-Hudson is in her first term as a state legislator. She has been a member of city council, legislative director to city council, director of the Lucas County Board of Elections, and chief legal counsel to the Ohio Office of Budget and Management.
Her talk will be followed by an open discussion on the health of Lake Erie at the monthly meeting of the Lake Erie Waterkeeper organization. Toledo Yacht Club is at 3900 N. Summit St. Information: lakeeriewaterkeeper.org
