Healthy Water Ohio says collaboration needed to address water issues

In the wake of the recent crisis in Toledo, the Healthy Water Ohio (HwO) coalition gathered at Grand Lake St. Marys to discuss collaborative solutions to the state’s water resource challenges.

HwO is a uniquely diverse group of stakeholders from conservation, business and industry, universities, water suppliers, agriculture, public health and others. The group, launched publicly in July, is developing a 20 to 30 year management strategy to address water issues for Ohio. One priority issue is toxic algae.

Grand Lake was chosen as the meeting site because, like Lake Erie, it has been challenged by harmful algal blooms. HwO stakeholders learned about the systems being used to keep Grand Lake’s water safe to drink.
