I know Toledo does have to put some of the chemicals in the water before they sell it to South County but I think SC may do their own chlorination and maybe add some others...  not positive on that but I think that is what the big plant is on Dixie right at the state line.

Actually, it's a small plant with a big holding tank....lol

The green kool aid is getting closer every day....

There are other locations across the country that have similar issues with the toxin although typically not on the large scare we have here on Lake Erie.

It's back!

Don't know what the big deal is.

It looks the same color it was when I was a kid.

Looks to be the color of bean soup to me.  Good stuff there.....

I wonder if, like bean soup, it causes flatus?

I see a Big Head adult carp was caught just a couple miles from Lake Michigan.  Maybe the Big Head carp when they invade Lake Erie will clean up the algae bloom....lol

From Twitter this morning:

The algae bloom is huge and thick except around Fermi...   wonder what gives with that?

Our son took a boat ride a week or so ago on Halfway Creek down at the state line.  Heavy, heavy green slimy water :( :( :(

You'd think the warm water coming out of nuke facilities would promote the growth of algae.  Maybe the pumping action forces the algae away from the shoreline.
The algae can't be good for us.  And all chemicals they are treating it with can't be good for us either.

Toledo now asking Feds for help. A few weeks ago the Trump administration invited states county leaders to DC for a day.  Lucas counties 3 "leaders" said they were to busy to go.  Democrats I might add.  Now they think Trump going to help them..

While I don't live there. from what I observe, Hicks-Hudson is a couple cards short of a full deck.  I think she's gonna loose to the Wade Guy with the loooong last (polish) name...

I see the pea soup is up in Canada too.  Read they closed their beaches.

Sure is nasty stuff.  Too bad they cannot find a use for it, like a food additive or fertilizer or something that would give them an economic reason to suck it up, process it and make a buck on it..,.  I mean Democrats are all about making a buck...right?

Keep drinking that Ice Mountain.  Supports the local economy up where my ground is.  I think Stanwood is going to cap how much they can pull though.

Toledo nothing but a democrat machine. Just like Detroit was when it went to hell..  Hicks-Hudson will get more intercity votes than there are residents..

Even in a world with hurricanes and mass shootings the algae bloom has continued to grow...   we just aren't paying as much attention to it even though it's much, much closer to us than either of the above!
