Algae level concerns in NW Ohio communities

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Elevated algae levels are causing concerns in northwest Ohio communities that use Lake Erie as a drinking water source.

The city of Toledo has alerted residents that they have increased testing of the water.

On Thursday, officials warned residents in Carroll Township to avoid drinking township water. In the meantime, the township will be supplied by the Ottawa County Regional Water Plant.

The Lake Erie algae bloom has produced toxins that should not be ingested.
