State of the Lake: A tri-state water quality discussion
February 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Since the 2014 Toledo’s water crisis, a lot has been said about the Lake Erie algae bloom issue, and the local agriculture community, in general, has been taking the blame for being responsible for the generation of nonpoint sources pollution. (Nonpoint sources are associated with the interaction of land use activities and the hydrological cycle).
To help the local community and farmers at the western Lake Erie basin have a better understanding of why dissolved phosphorus is such a problem for Lake Erie and what you can do to minimize it, Michigan State University Extension, Ohio State University Extension and Purdue Extension are partnering to bring to southeast Michigan the State of the Lake: A Tri-State Water Quality Discussion.
Chris Winslow, the Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Lab director, will discuss nutrient management effects on Lake Erie, while Extension educators from the Tri-State area will cover topics related to the newly revised Tri-State fertility recommendations, nutrient management fine tuning and the impact of cover crops on phosphorus.
