And unfortunately that is right where the water intake crib is located.

    They are pretty bad every year, but they die off pretty fast and their "season" doesn't last longer than a week or two.. Most smaller shore communities turn off the lights to keep them from collecting onshore.

    I don't see anything in the story that states anything related to "This is causing other Great Lake states to start retesting their water. "

    The issue is how we use the lake. The infrastructure is doing exactly what it was designed to do.

    When too much water is taken into the storm system, we flush raw sewage into the lake, sometimes tens of millions of gallons.

    The water is safe. Its just been announced. The fear mongering and threats to socialize the private sector can stop now.

    A couple of years ago I attended a public meeting to stop the dredging if a local river. The farmers in the area wanted the river straightened out to move water out as fast as possible. This would not fly in Michigan.
    Doesn't really matter. Heavy rain, no matter what, will wash it into the river. Ohio has gotten alot of rain fall this spring and summer so fertilizer never had a chance to settle.

    Sewer systems in general, infrastructure. I bet 4 billion would go along way. Oh, wait. We need to spend 4 billion on the illegals.

    Drinking water is probably kind of important.
