Toledo mayor requests help to avoid water problems

TOLEDO, Ohio – Toledo’s mayor has sent a letter to President Barack Obama, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and lawmakers imploring them to do whatever it takes financially to get the city through the 2014 algae season without any more water problems.

Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins on Monday called on federal and state officials to “take swift action to preserve our health and quality of life,” according to an excerpt of the letter provided to The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/1yqOxrw ).

Collins said he did not specify an amount of money needed nor advocate for specific legislation.

Earlier this month, 400,000 people in the Toledo area were advised against drinking tap water because it was contaminated by algae-induced toxins from Lake Erie.

Collins has defended the city’s response to the crisis.
