The effort to restore Chesapeake Bay is something I knew vaguely about but had never looked into. A new on-line  dashboard of relevant material inspired me to take a deeper dive. The restoration plan is definitely worth a closer look., It’s the U.S. leading effort to reduce“nonpoint source” water pollution such as agricultural runoff. It is increasingly that type of pollution, not discharges from factories or sewage plants, which causes the most harm to water bodies. So far, the restoration plan has had some genuine success, but it’s behind schedule and needs a shot in the arm from EPA. As far as I can recall, I’ve never seen the Chesapeake—another gap in my environmental awareness. Here’s what I found out from some quick research.To begin with, it’s really big. The 200-mile-long bay is the largest estuary in the United States and third largest in the world, with an area of 4500 square miles. (That’s about three times…

Upon check-in, the staff was most pleasant and gave us a good insight to the rules and regs of the campground. We drove to our assigned camp site and found that everything was not as "nice" as the web site depicts. We found that there was a lot of mud, and mulch debris all over the site. Didn't pay much attention to it at the time, but every time we went into our camper, we dragged this mulch stuff in and it got all over our sheets. We had to constantly sweep out our camper. We were told that all we had to do to re-enter the park was to drive up to the gate, enter our code and drive in when the gate goes up. We left for a bit on Saturday the 28th. When we returned, there was a "gate guard" sitting in a golf cart at the gate. As we slowly drove by, she asked "Can I help you?". I replied "NO THANK YOU" and attempted to get up to the key code unit. She yelled at me to "GET BACK HERE". When I backed up to see what she wanted, she commenced to give me the "3rd Degree" about who we were, were we camping there, etc. She wasn't even nice about it. When I showed her our pass, she opened the gate - I DID NOT NEED HER HELP TO OPEN THE GATE!!! The Restrooms appeared to be neat and clean. However, in the men's side, of six (6) stalls, only two (2) had toilet paper and one of these unit was plugged up with a big nasty looking mess. Went to take a shower and found the privacy door kind of falling off the hinges, to which I had to lift it up to close it. The women's side didn't fare much better. The shower stalls do not have space to leave you dry clothes, or dress without getting wet. Kind of defeats the purpose of taking a shower and putting on dry clothes. Lastly, the rain came. Our site flooded to the point we had no other option but to pack up and leave. Both my wife and I were absolutely soaked by the time we got the camper loaded and on our way. Chesapeake Campground DOES NOT GIVE REFUNDS. We WILL NOT visit this camp site again.

          PADEP says we'll do better to cut Chesapeake pollution       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Storm mess in Annapolis
Scott Dance reports for the Baltimore Sun

Pennsylvania officials on Tuesday conceded to Maryland Gov. 
Larry Hogan and other state leaders in the Chesapeake Bay watershed that the Commonwealth has not done its part to reduce pollution washing into waterways.
Patrick McDonnell, Pennsylvania’s secretary of environmental protection, said that will change as a target to restore Chesapeake ecosystems by 2025 approaches.
“We are committed and developing a plan that gets us to 2025,” he told the Chesapeake Executive Council, a group that oversees the federal Chesapeake Bay Program, at a meeting in Fells Point.
“We are clearly behind,” he said. “But we’ve taken that as an opportunity to double down.”
The promise came a week after Hogan publicly criticized Pennsylvania and New York for sending a deluge of debris and pollution down the Susquehanna River during recent flooding.
Hogan and McDonnell avoided trading barbs at the council’s annual meeting, which brings together the governors of the six bay watershed states, the mayor of Washington and Environmental Protection Agency officials. Both men said Tuesday’s meeting was productive, and that they hoped it would guide continued improvements in Chesapeake ecology.
“The fact that we have an open dialogue with our upstream neighbors is a positive first step,” Hogan said.
The Chesapeake has posted improving scores in recent years on report cards rating indicators such as underwater grass growth, dissolved oxygen levels and populations of rockfish and blue crabs. That progress has led environmentalists and scientists to declare that efforts of the state-federal bay program partnership are working.
But recently released data through the midpoint of a cleanup effort launched in 2010 show Pennsylvania is far from reaching goals for reducing nitrogen and sediment, and is also falling short of a goal for phosphorus reduction.
The data show Maryland and Virginia have missed goals in some areas, too — including targets to reduce the amount of nitrogen runoff coming from farms.

          PBA Spare Shots: Michael Haugen Jr. Locks Up PBA50 Player of the Year Honors; Top 12 Still in Question      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On the basis of points earned for his runner-up finish in Tuesday’s PBA50 Security Federal Savings Bank Championship, presented by Track, in Anderson, Ind., 2017 PBA50 Rookie of the Year Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix has added the 2018 PBA50 Player of the Year award to his portfolio.

With only the PBA50 Cup presented by DV8 remaining on the PBA50 Tour’s regular-season schedule, Haugen ended the PBA50 Player of the Year drama in Anderson by boosting his tour-leading competition points total to 28,500 – eliminating Norm Duke (20,014), Ron Mohr (19,721) and Walter Ray Williams Jr. (19,027) from contention. All three had mathematical chances to catch Haugen entering last week’s tournament.

By locking up Player of the Year, Haugen became the second player to win PBA50 ROY and POY honors in consecutive years, joining Mark Roth who accomplished the feat in 2001 and ’02. Duke and Tom Baker are the only two to win ROY and POY in the same year. A handful of others have won both awards, but not in the same or consecutive years.

With POY settled, the PBA50 Rookie of the Year race is still up in the air heading into the PBA50 Cup in Wyoming, Mich., along with the 12 berths in a new end-of-season PBA50 Storm Invitational that will be held at Planet Fun Bowling and Entertainment Center in Shallotte, N.C., Sept. 28-30. In addition to Haugen, Duke, Mohr and Williams, the other eight players among the top 12 in points after Anderson include Brian Kretzer (17,015), Lennie Boresch Jr. (16,089), Ryan Shafer (14,684), Parker Bohn III (14,533), Bob Learn Jr. (14,049), Amleto Monacelli (12,634), Pete Weber (10,307) and Harry Sullins (9,814). Just off the pace are Brian Voss (9,664) and Bryan Goebel (9,430).

The PBA50 Storm Invitational will feature a field of 14 including two invitational spots to be decided later. The special event will offer a $10,000 first prize.

Following the PBA50 Cup, Xtra Frame will cover the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship for players 60 and older, presented by 900 Global, at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne, Ind., Aug. 14-16, before the 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour resumes competition Aug. 17-19 with the 10th anniversary Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic at Mid-County Lanes in Middletown, Del., followed by the Kenn-Feld Group Classic at Pla-Mor Lanes in Coldwater, Ohio, Aug. 24-26.

PBA CEO-COMMISSIONER ATTENDS TERRELL OWENS’ NFL HALL OF FAME CEREMONY

Clark.Tom_Owens.Terrell_2018 Owens NFL HOF party in Chattanooga TNPBA CEO and Commissioner Tom Clark was on hand to help his long-time PBA friend, Terrell Owens, celebrate his entry into the NFL Hall of Fame in a unique ceremony held at Owens’ alma mater, the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, on Aug. 4.

Owens, who has been a friend of the PBA since becoming one of the original PBA League owners (Dallas Strikers) in 2013, has since competed as a player in the PBA World Series of Bowling in Las Vegas, participated in five CP3 PBA Celebrity invitational events (winning in 2013 in Los Angeles with partner Pete Weber), and hosted the 2017 Main Event Terrell Owens PBA Super Clash in Houston. He has attended several other PBA events as a fan, and has competed in two USBC Open Championships with Clark and others on a Bowlers Journal team as an active bowler.

Owens, in making a statement to the football writers who select NFL Hall of Famers, decided not to participate in the traditional induction ceremonies in Canton, Ohio, but hosted his own induction ceremony in Chattanooga.

Third-year PBA member Jakob Butturff of Tempe, Ariz., defeated AJ Johnson of Oswego, Ill., 249-234, to win the PBA Glo Bowl Midwest Open at Glo Bowl Fun Center in Hoffman Estates, Ill., Sunday for his 17th career PBA Regional title.

Butturff, a 24-year-old left-hander, earned $1,600 along with his second PBA Midwest Region title of the 2018 season to go along with two other titles won in the PBA’s West and Northwest Regions earlier in the season.

Johnson, the PBA Midwest Region’s reigning Player of the Year, defeated Nick Kruml of Downers Grove, Ill., 268-190, in the first stepladder match and then eliminated Tom Hess of Urbandale, Iowa, 236-197, in the semifinal game to advance to the championship match.

Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Twp., Mich. defeated Ryan Shafer of Horseheads, N.Y., 246-213, to win the 21st PBA50 Progressive/Gerdeman Insurance-Al Smith Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep Central/Midwest Classic at Al-Mar Lanes in Bowling Green, Ohio, Saturday.

The title was Sullins’ second of the year in the PBA Central Region and his 35th career PBA Regional title. He also earned $3,500.

Sullins defeated Eddie Graham of Centerville, Ohio, 181-158, to advance to the championship match after eliminating Brian Kretzer of Dayton, Ohio, 222-194, in the first stepladder match.

Darren Andretta of Wantagh, N.Y., rallied from a 30-pin deficit after seven frames to defeat Brad Angelo of Lockport, N.Y., 228-207, in the championship round of the PBA Bowlers Supply/Storm Open at Colony Park Lanes North in York, Pa., Sunday.

Angelo was leading by 30 pins when he opened in the eighth frame. After Angelo converted a single-pin spare in the ninth frame, Andretta rolled strikes in the ninth and the first two in the 10th to clinch his third career title and his second of the 2018 season along with the $2,500 first prize.

Andretta reached the finals by defeating Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Fla., 236-211, in the semifinal round while Angelo defeated teenager Anthony Neuer of Lewisburg, Pa., 217-185, in the other semifinal match. Neuer, the 16-year old son of PBA Tour titlist Andy Neuer, recently won the U20 division of the USBC Junior Gold Championships, earned $1,000 for his SMART scholarship account.

Richard Wilburn of Adamstown, Md., defeated Mike Hastings of Millsboro, Del., 245-211, in the title match to win his first PBA title in the PBA50 Sparetimes Hampton Southern Open presented by Radical at Sparetimes Family Fun Center Sunday.

Wilburn started the title match with five strikes while Hastings had two open frames in his first five. Hastings rallied behind a string of four strikes to threaten, but Wilburn answered with strikes in the ninth and 10th frames to seal the $2,000 top prize.

In the semifinal round, Wilburn defeated Chris Johnson of Nashville, N.C., 217-167, while Hastings took out Tommy Brodowski of New Hyde Park, N.Y., 204-172.

          Lancaster County’s Matt Kofroth Receives Watershed Champion Award From Alliance for The Chesapeake Bay      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay will recognize four environmental leaders at its annual Taste Of The Chesapeake Awards dinner on  September 13 in Annapolis.
Matt Kofroth from Lancaster County will be honored with the Watershed Champion Award.
Kofroth’s knowledge and “can do” spirit are at the heart of his local watershed work, and the Watershed Champion Award recognizes his incredible impact on each downstream neighbor who has benefited from the many projects and programs he’s implemented.
During his years of volunteering in watershed efforts prior to his work at the Lancaster County Conservation District, he steadily built a base of understanding about the improvements and best practices needed to help Lancaster County, PA, waterways.
As the watershed specialist at the district for almost 20 years, Matt has coordinated volunteer monitoring programs, helped to organize local watershed associations, reviewed and written grants for restoration projects and created resources for county homeowners to improve their water use.
His innovations in watershed education have empowered numerous volunteers to make a difference in their own watershed.
Recognizing that one person can’t do it all, he guides and serves as a resource to enable others to excel and complete goals broadening the ripples in the stream, so to speak.
Matt has contributed to the Alliance’s Pennsylvania work, including the READY program and Restoring the Octoraro Reservoir project, as well as serving as a guide for the Alliance’s state team in writing a watershed implementation plan.
Matt has been involved in countless Alliance efforts and is a resident watershed expert for many groups in Lancaster County and beyond.
Matt also coordinated a project-- restoration of a section of Big Beaver Creek on a Plain Sect farm-- recently highlighted by DEP and the Department of Agriculture during Chesapeake Bay Watershed Awareness Week.  The project won the Governor’s 2018 Award For Environmental Excellence.

          Chesapeake Bay Foundation Backs Maryland In Conowingo Lawsuits      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation Friday filed a motion to intervene in a federal lawsuit that may determine whether Exelon Corporation, the owner of the Conowingo Dam, must contribute to clean up pollution problems related to the dam.
"We have a unique interest in the outcome of this case. Chesapeake Bay Foundation has worked for decades to reduce pollution coming down the Susquehanna River and despoiling the Chesapeake Bay," said CBF Vice President for Litigation Jon Mueller. "Most recently, we commissioned an economic study proving that Exelon can make a sizeable contribution towards rectifying harm to natural resources and the Bay exacerbated by the dam. As the recent heavy rains and resulting discharges from the dam demonstrated, it is critical that CBF be permitted to present our information and represent the interests of our members to the court."
For decades, the Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River in Maryland trapped much of the nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment pollution carried by the river and prevented it from reaching the main stem of the Chesapeake Bay.
But now the area behind the dam has silted in, and more quickly than scientists had anticipated. Major storms scour some of that sediment and wash it downstream.
The Bay states have agreed to share some of the responsibility for this problem. The Maryland Department of the Environment also has ordered that Exelon be accountable for a major portion of the pollution reduction or contribute significant funding.
That mandate was part of Maryland's Water Quality Certification for the dam, required by Section 401 of the Clean Water Act. Exelon is seeking a 46-year license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to continue operating the dam.
Among other things, the certification requires Exelon to account for and reduce the amount of nitrogen and phosphorus discharged through the dam due to the dam's reduced trapping capacity.
In addition, Exelon must mitigate all the lost capacity by any combination of dredging, installing best management practices or ecosystem restoration actions, or paying an annual fee-in-lieu based on pounds of pollution discharged.
This final option would amount to an annual payment of approximately $172 million.
In response, Exelon filed two judicial actions: one in the U.S. District Court for District of Columbia and another in the Circuit Court of Baltimore City.
On May 25, Exelon also filed a "Protective Petition for Reconsideration and Administrative Appeal" with the Maryland Department of the Environment in which it requests Maryland reconsider and stay its decision to issue the certification.
Exelon argues Maryland exceeded its authority under state and federal law, and that the state's decision was arbitrary and capricious, among other things.
The state moved to dismiss Exelon's DC Circuit Court action on July 11, arguing that the state is immune from suit under the Eleventh Amendment and that Exelon failed to exhaust its administrative remedies prior to filing suit. CBF supports those arguments.
A similar motion will be filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court.

          Here's How Toxic Tap Water Can Send You Scrambling for Something Safe to Drink — and Why It Might Become the New Normal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Toledo was the first large U.S. city where toxic algae blooms made tap water unsafe to drink. But it may not be the last.

TOLEDO, Ohio -- In the middle of a muggy summer night, Keith Jordan got an urgent text: Toledo's tap water wasn't safe to drink.

"I thought it was a joke," said Jordan, who works with at-risk youth in Toledo’s inner city. He went back to sleep. When he got up a few hours later, he took a shower and had a cup of coffee, then turned on the news.

"They were saying don't drink the water, don't take a shower—the water is messed up," Jordan said. "You couldn't even touch the water. It was something you could not believe was happening here in Toledo."

That was August 2, 2014. For the next three days, half a million people in and around this industrial city at the western edge of Lake Erie scrambled to find safe water.

Many drove hours across state borders to stand in long lines at stores that hadn't sold out of bottled water. Some stores were charging $40 for a case of water that usually costs less than $5. Jordan, unaffected by his shower and coffee, helped set up distribution centers for free water, and helped deliver it to seniors and mothers with babies. The National Guard sent tanker trucks full of drinking water to the city.

The panic was set off by a toxin called microcystin, the byproduct of an enormous bloom of blue-green algae that had invaded Lake Erie. The bloom—technically not algae, but photosynthetic single-celled organisms called cyanobacteria—blanketed vast expanses of the lake with what looked like thick, sickly green split-pea soup. It was triggered by chemical pollution from farm fertilizers and industrial sources into the lake, which supplies the region's tap water.

Toledo was the first large U.S. city where toxic blooms made tap water unsafe for human consumption. But it may not be the last.

No government agency collects nationwide data on toxic blooms. But Environmental Working Group's research found news reports of almost 300 blooms in lakes, rivers and bays in 48 states and the Gulf of Mexico since 2010. Based on those reports, the problem appears to have worsened over the past few years.

In 2010, there were just three reports of toxic blooms in the U.S. In 2015, there were 15, including the largest to date in Lake Erie, although the bacteria did not get into Toledo's drinking water. In 2016, there were 51, including a huge bloom in Florida that prompted the state to declare an emergency in four counties on the Atlantic Coast. Last year, 169 blooms were reported. And in March, Ohio Gov. John Kasich declared the open waters of western Lake Erie "impaired for recreation"—an unprecedented designation that under the federal Clean Water Act will require the development and enforcement of plans to reduce toxic blooms.

Cyanotoxin blooms are a worldwide problem, according to Sandy Bihn, executive director of Lake Erie Waterkeeper.

"We've seen them in Australia, there was a bloom in Brazil where the microcystin actually killed people, they're in China,” Bihn said. "In the Great Lakes, some of the bigger areas that have them are Saginaw Bay and Green Bay. We have [seen blooms in] Lake Okeechobee in Florida, the Chesapeake [Bay], the Gulf of Mexico. We're all connected to this problem in many ways."

Notable U.S. Algal Blooms

Algal blooms don't always produce toxic microcystins. When they do they’re not just a gross and smelly nuisance but can pose serious health hazards to people, pets and wildlife.

According to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (pdf), some microcystins are more dangerous than any other water contaminant besides dioxin, the notorious poison in Agent Orange. Whether through ingestion or skin contact, short-term exposure to microcystins can cause sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and liver damage. Long-term exposure can lead to cancer, liver failure and sperm damage.

Data on illnesses linked to toxic blooms are spotty. But a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that in 2009-2010, 61 people in Ohio, New York and Washington state got sick from exposure to toxic blooms in freshwater lakes. Two-thirds of those affected were teenagers or younger children. The CDC said this suggests children may be at greater risk of illness from cyanotoxins, due to more frequent exposure to and ingestion of the water.

A New York State Department of Health survey of 16 counties found that in the summer of 2015, 32 people and three dogs got sick after recreational use of lakes contaminated with cyanotoxins. That same summer, a Michigan man reported he was ill for months from handling fish he caught in Lake Erie, and the East Bay Regional Park District, near San Francisco, closed five lakes after three dogs died. In June 2016, 130 people reported vomiting, diarrhea, headache and rashes after swimming, skiing or fishing in Utah's largest freshwater lake, which was almost completely covered by toxic blooms.

In addition to the health hazards, toxic blooms devastate western Lake Erie's recreation economy, which brings in billions of dollars a year.

During a toxic bloom, visitors to the lake's white-sand beaches are greeted by signs warning against swimming or any other contact with the water. Sandy Bihn of the Lake Erie Waterkeeper lives near a state park on the south shore. She said that during Labor Day weekend last year when one of the largest blooms of the decade forced closure of the beaches, the park was "dead silent, just eerie and sad."

Dave Spangler, vice president of the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association, has been taking anglers out on the lake since the 1970s.

"We're the walleye capital of the world, with many, many people from all over the country and even out of the country who come here to fish,” he said. "But [during the record bloom] in 2015, we had people with reservations call after seeing the pictures of what the lake looked like, and they just said, ‘I don’t think we want to go.'"

"We had to shut down for six or seven weeks, right in the heyday of our season," Spangler said. "We got hit by 20 or 25 percent losses, and so did the bait and tackle shops, and all the rest of the businesses that rely not just on fishing but other forms of recreation."

The conditions that trigger cyanotoxin blooms vary by location. In Lake Erie, they occur when too much phosphorus and nitrogen wash into the lake's shallow west end, usually after a heavy rain in the summer months. The blooms don't erupt until the water gets warm, then subside once the weather cools off in the fall.

The chemicals get into the lake from a number of sources, including power plants and sewage treatment plants. But the National Center for Water Quality Research, at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio, says the "inescapable conclusion" from 40 years of study is that the main culprit is phosphorus runoff from commercial fertilizers and manure applied to farm fields.

Much of that runoff comes from the Maumee River, which flows into the lake through the heart of Toledo. The river drains an area of more than 8,300 square miles in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, and according to Waterkeeper, more than 70 percent of that land is used for agriculture. Besides millions of acres of cropland, the western Lake Erie watershed has 140 concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs, which produce an estimated 630 million gallons of animal waste a year.

Under an agreement with neighboring Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario, Ohio has set a goal of reducing phosphorous runoff into the lake by 40 percent in the next seven years. For years, the state has tried to address the problem by encouraging farmers to take voluntary steps to cut back their use of fertilizer and adopt land management practices that help control runoff, such as planting cover crops. But as Gov. Kasich's administration acknowledged in declaring the lake's open waters impaired, voluntary programs haven't been good enough.

"Farmers don't wake up in the morning and say, 'It's a good day to pollute the environment,'" said Kristy Meyer, vice president for natural resources policy at the Ohio Environmental Council. "But they're trying to maximize crop yield, and the old way of thinking about how to do that was to apply more fertilizer or manure. We need auditable common-sense standards to make sure farmers comply with what we call the four Rs: Only apply soil nutrients from the right source, at the right rate, at the right time, in the right place.

"Farmers should also work with certified professionals to put into place nutrient management plans for their farm fields, which will require a phase-in period, along with funding to assist farmers in implementing these practices," Meyer added. "That's not only the right way to control runoff, it's the right business plan."

In addition to tougher state laws and the pollution control measures that will be triggered by the impaired-waters designation, federal farm subsidies can play a major role in addressing the problem. Ohio farmers received almost $600 million in federal subsidies in 2016. Congress is expected to vote on a new farm bill this year, providing an opportunity to tie farmers' eligibility for subsidies to compliance with sustainable practices.

"Farm subsidies need to be more strategic in terms of costs versus environmental benefits," said Bihn. "We as taxpayers deserve to get the biggest bang for our buck."

Nicholas Mandros, northwest director for the Ohio Environmental Council, is a native of Toledo who formerly worked in local government. He's proud of the way the community responded to the 2014 water crisis and of the improvements the city has made to its water treatment facilities. But he said the crisis has "created a constant uncertainty every summer whether we will face another threat to our drinking water."

Keith Jordan, the inner-city youth worker, said that three years after the 2014 crisis, some people still won’t drink Toledo's tap water.

"In my church, I know some people won't give it to their babies," Jordan said. "They're just not sure if they can trust it."

Looking out at the lake from the deck of his charter boat, Dave Spangler said he also has second thoughts.

"I'm not a big bottled water guy," he said. "I'm used to walking into the kitchen and grabbing a glass of water and gulping it down and never thinking another thing about it. Now I don’t look at it that way. But I shouldn't have to think about it. No one should. Not here in the United States."

          Here's How Toxic Tap Water Can Send You Scrambling for Something Safe to Drink — and Why It Might Become the New Normal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Toledo was the first large U.S. city where toxic algae blooms made tap water unsafe to drink. But it may not be the last.

TOLEDO, Ohio -- In the middle of a muggy summer night, Keith Jordan got an urgent text: Toledo's tap water wasn't safe to drink.

"I thought it was a joke," said Jordan, who works with at-risk youth in Toledo’s inner city. He went back to sleep. When he got up a few hours later, he took a shower and had a cup of coffee, then turned on the news.

"They were saying don't drink the water, don't take a shower—the water is messed up," Jordan said. "You couldn't even touch the water. It was something you could not believe was happening here in Toledo."

That was August 2, 2014. For the next three days, half a million people in and around this industrial city at the western edge of Lake Erie scrambled to find safe water.

Many drove hours across state borders to stand in long lines at stores that hadn't sold out of bottled water. Some stores were charging $40 for a case of water that usually costs less than $5. Jordan, unaffected by his shower and coffee, helped set up distribution centers for free water, and helped deliver it to seniors and mothers with babies. The National Guard sent tanker trucks full of drinking water to the city.

The panic was set off by a toxin called microcystin, the byproduct of an enormous bloom of blue-green algae that had invaded Lake Erie. The bloom—technically not algae, but photosynthetic single-celled organisms called cyanobacteria—blanketed vast expanses of the lake with what looked like thick, sickly green split-pea soup. It was triggered by chemical pollution from farm fertilizers and industrial sources into the lake, which supplies the region's tap water.

Toledo was the first large U.S. city where toxic blooms made tap water unsafe for human consumption. But it may not be the last.

No government agency collects nationwide data on toxic blooms. But Environmental Working Group's research found news reports of almost 300 blooms in lakes, rivers and bays in 48 states and the Gulf of Mexico since 2010. Based on those reports, the problem appears to have worsened over the past few years.

In 2010, there were just three reports of toxic blooms in the U.S. In 2015, there were 15, including the largest to date in Lake Erie, although the bacteria did not get into Toledo's drinking water. In 2016, there were 51, including a huge bloom in Florida that prompted the state to declare an emergency in four counties on the Atlantic Coast. Last year, 169 blooms were reported. And in March, Ohio Gov. John Kasich declared the open waters of western Lake Erie "impaired for recreation"—an unprecedented designation that under the federal Clean Water Act will require the development and enforcement of plans to reduce toxic blooms.
