Dr. Justin Chaffin, research scientist for The Ohio State University's Stone Lab and Ohio Sea Grant, along with partners across Ohio and Michigan, has received funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to study what causes Lake Erie algal blooms to become toxic. The study, which will incorporate both computer modeling and hands-on laboratory experiments, is focused on providing more guidance to water utilities on when they should plan to treat drinking water for algal toxins.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a Water Quality Certification for the NEXUS natural gas pipeline following a review to ensure the project complies with Ohio law and is protective of the environment and public health.

NEXUS Gas Transmission LLC is proposing to install 209 miles of new 36-inch diameter mainline pipeline and associated above ground facilities in Ohio before it heads into Michigan and Canada. It starts in Columbiana County in eastern Ohio, then goes northwest across the state into the counties of Stark, Summit, Medina, Lorain, Erie, Huron, Sandusky, Henry, Wayne, Fulton, Wood and Lucas before ending at the Ohio-Michigan state line. It will eventually head into upstate Michigan before it will connect to an existing pipeline in Ontario, Canada.
