Green Menace: Algae takes over more territory int he Great Lakes

Environmental scientists at the University of Toledo examine the harmful Algal Bloom in the Western Lake Erie Basin and explain how agricultural and municipal run off and sewage introduce pollutants, specifically phosphorus, into the watershed.  The Ohio Sea Grant project and Stone Laboratory highlight how that phosphorus and those pollutants feed harmful forms of algae which flourish in the warm shallow waters of Lake Erie.
