University of Toledo forms water task force

– A university in northwestern Ohio says it's forming a group to help government leaders deal with the ongoing algae threat on Lake Erie.

The University of Toledo says the group will act as a resource and provide information about research that's been done on the lake's water quality.

The university already has a research center on Lake Erie that regularly monitors the water.

The move comes some four weeks after Toledo was forced to issue a do-not-drink advisory for 400,000 people after toxins from algae on the lake contaminated the city's water supply.
