Study: Lake Erie In Poorest Condition Great Lakes

(Cleveland, OH)  A new study finds Lake Erie is in the worst condition of all the Great Lakes.

The U.S. EPA's "State of the Great Lakes" report says Lake Erie's water quality is deteriorating amid an increase in toxic algae blooms.  Despite the negative outlook, the report notes an increase in the walleye population in Lake Erie and a booming sport fishing industry. 

Heavy spring rains are leading may to predict another large toxix algae bloom in the shallow western Lake Erie basin, but it's not clear if it will reach the level of 2014's bloom that caused Toledo's toxic water crisis.
