The Lake Erie Improvement Association is a voice for the tourists, boaters, fishermen, businesses, governments, property owners and anyone impacted economically by the health and well-being of the lake. Right now, the issue on everyone’s minds regarding Lake Erie is the presence of the blue green algae blooms.

One of the speakers at the conference was Dr. Jeff Reutter Director of Ohio Sea Grant and the Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory. Stone Laboratory is the oldest freshwater biological field station in the United States which continuously conducts research to solve the most pressing problems facing the Great Lakes. 80% of Lake Erie’s water comes from the upper Great Lakes, 10% comes from direct precipitation and 10% comes from the Lake Erie tributaries; the tributaries are where Dr. Reutter said the problem lies.
