Last week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicted that Western Lake Erie will experience a significant Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) this summer. Oregon’s Harmful Algal Bloom infrastructure improvement project will be ready to make sure microcystin, a toxin released from HAB, does not get into the water supply.
The $15 million project, which will treat water with ozone, has been under construction at the water treatment plant for months. It will be completed this summer.
