NOAA Reports Latest Algal Bloom for Western Lake Erie

Experimental Lake Erie Harmful Algal Bloom Bulletin
08 August, 2016, Bulletin 09

There has been a slight increase in concentration nearest the Maumee River, otherwise there has not been a substantial change in the bloom severity over the last week. The cyanobacterial (Microcystis) bloom continues to be detectable in moderate concentrations in far western Lake Erie, extending from Maumee Bay along the Michigan coast, and extending east into the western basin to near West Sister Island at low concentrations. Low concentrations of cyanobacteria are found on the Ohio coast east of Toledo.
