Lake Erie HABs and lake water quality

This category discusses issues pertaining to Lake Erie. General information about harmful algal blooms (HABs) can also be found. This includes causes of HABs, issues related to cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins, and the effects HABs on human health, drinking water, and wildlife.

Articles that discuss water quality can also be found. Topics include the history of Lake Erie’s water quality, the effects that nutrient loading, pollution, and decreased oxygen levels have on lake water.
