(Toledo, OH) This year's battle with toxic algae on Lake Erie appears to be over.
Toledo city officials declared the algae season over Monday after nine straight days with no sign of harmful algae at the water intake crib. Water temperatures below 62 degrees and colder air temperatures ahead are expected to kill the algae that's left.
Scientists also agree the green slime and sludge that invaded the Maumee River for weeks is going away.
Toledo's water treatment officials say tests for toxins will continue on a daily basis.
