$19M coming from the federal government to fight Lake Erie algae

Approx­i­mately $19 mil­lion goes towards cut­ting down on agri­cul­ture runoff that con­tributes to the lake’s algae.

Offi­cials hope to reduce the phos­pho­rus com­ing from fer­til­izer and wash­ing into the rivers that flow into the lake.
