Freshwater Science: Lake Erie Algae in the Depth of Winter

OHSU-CAST-1704
Freshwater Science: Lake Erie Algae in the Depth of Winter

Although harmful algal blooms happen in the summer, the algae themselves are year-round residents of the water bodies they inhabit – but very little is known about other times in the annual cycle of blooms. For Lake Erie, ice cover and extreme weather conditions in winter and spring prevent regular monitoring and safe sampling.

By partnering with the U.S. and Canadian Coast Guards, Dr. Mike McKay at the University of Windsor can take advantage of those ships’ ice-breaking capabilities to sample offshore waters in winter and early spring, before state and federal agencies start their monitoring efforts.

Tipping Point Planner Community Workshop Report, Ottawa County Ohio

OHSU-TS-1546
Tipping Point Planner Community Workshop Report, Ottawa County Ohio

Ottawa County, Ohio is situated on the coast of western Lake Erie. This area was identified by the US EPA’s US-Canada Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement as an Area of Concern. With the goal of assisting with engagement on land use and tourism concerns related to the development of a new strategic plan for the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation, Ohio Sea Grant, Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant partnered with the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation (OCIC) to hold a Tipping Point Planner (TPP) workshop. Through collaboration with Reveille LTD, a local planning consultancy, and OCIC, Ottawa County as a whole was identified as a focus area. In total, over 50 people participated in the two-day workshop.

Ohio Sea Grant, Reveille LTD, and the OCIC led the development of a steering committee which included key stakeholders from county departments, elected officials, and the public. The steering committee identified two key focus areas of focus for the workshop: Land Use Planning, Development, Open Space and Nature-Based Solutions; and Lake Fish Populations and Water Quality: Implications for Tourism and Recreation.

Freshwater Science: Using Bacteria to Remove Microcystin from Drinking Water

OHSU-CAST-1703
Freshwater Science: Using Bacteria to Remove Microcystin from Drinking Water

Many Ohio communities draw their drinking water from Lake Erie, so making sure that any harmful algal bloom toxins are removed before the water reaches consumers is essential to maintaining public health.

While water treatment plants currently use activated carbon, ozonation, and other methods to treat for algal toxins, Dr. Jason Huntley at The University of Toledo, with previous funding from the Harmful Algal Bloom Research Initiative and current funding from NOAA-PCMHAB is developing new cost-effective, efficient, and safe methods to remove algal toxins from drinking water, using bacteria that naturally break down microcystin toxin into non-toxic component parts. The team was issued a patent on this technology in May 2021.
