Yup....that's it, now I remember.  Hit a few big schools of perch out there a few years back.  Didn't think it was that far out though....10 miles.  Must be one hell of an area affected by the bloom......all that shallow water, N, and some good intense sunlight is all it takes.


10 miles east of the mouth of the Maumee and 2 miles from the mouth of the Cooley Canal...  probably only a mile and a half out.

Here's the chart and you can see the intake pipe running at a 45 degree angle almost to the right edge of the chart and then it shows crib lights at 50 ft.  It also shows Toledo Waterworks just on shore:

Here's the Google aerial centered over the Toledo Waterworks plant on the shore of Lake Erie:

I'm guessing this is the top of the crib but the resolution just isn't good enough...

13ABC Toledo was just interviewing Jason Sheppard (current county commissioner and candidate for State Rep) and EMD is open on Raisinville Road.  Bedford has 2 fire trucks that are hauling water from Monroe to Bedford.  It won't be safe for drinking but will be good for bathing or washing dishes!

What about eating Walleye and Perch? My son is an avid fisherman lately. Will they be safe to eat?

No matter where it is, it's suck'in crud....... ;D

I kind of wonder what the test frequency is and how long this has been going on????

Used to fish off the 5 mile crib in Cleveland.  Lots of perch out there too.

This all reminds me of Charleston WVA and the chemical spill there.  Some say the water is permanently screwed there.

Non potable water being handed out at Luna Pier fire station and at Bedford Twsp. hall.  Village of Dundee is using a couple of military surplus vehicles they have to haul 3000 gallons of water to 'somewhere'...

haven't heard where yet!

This all seems so much like an awful lot of over reaction to me...

but then I don't drink the water...

or the 'kool aid' ;) ;) ;)

I'd say the water (all of it) is safe to drink and cook with so long as you run a semi-permable membrane system (Reverse Osmosis).  That pulls all the organisms out......
...or you could trudge over the Gander Mountain or Bas Pro (Cabelas too) and buy a portable system for camping/backpacking.  Some use a ceramic filter, some are RO but all pull the microorganisms from the produced water.

Even the smaller systems produce enough water for cooking and drinking.  Tirlet water is no issue, neither is waser machine or lawn watering water or car washing water.

'The sky is falling' reaction by rhe sheeple.  All one has to do is use their brain.  Thats a novel concept these days.

I don't like Kool-Aid either.

The news broke around 2 am...

our son had to work today (love that 6 day pay) so he was up at 5:30 and went and got water for his family before things went crazy. 

By noon they already have truckloads of bottled water being diverted to Toledo area and a lot of that will be given away free. 

If this turns out to be a long term problem then I can see some logistics issues but then I guess it's time to panic!!!

Saw a tweet a few minutes ago that they have plenty of bottled water...

up in Brighton ;D ;D ;D

Bet the bulk of the 'free stuff' aka: entitlement water, winds up in the hood for the 'less fortunate' on the public dole.

The budders be stink'in if it gets hot and muggy...lol
