Our panel addressed the vital water issues in Northeast Ohio, specifically in Lake Erie, the Cuyahoga River and the other creeks, streams and rivers that empty into the lake. We discussed harmful algal blooms, PCBs and Mercury pollution, invasive species, the impending removal of 2 dams on the Cuyahoga River, the ongoing conflict with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over the disposal of dredged material, and the status and success of the NE Ohio Regional Sewer District’s multi-billion dollar tunnel project.
