Lake Erie – and every Great Lake – ought to be clean and safe for all people, not so polluted that it is a threat to our health and regional economy. After a toxic algae bloom shut down Toledo’s water system in 2014, the Governors of Michigan and Ohio and the Premier of Ontario pledged to take action—but progress has been slow. Now, another massive algae bloom is threatening Lake Erie. This is unacceptable.
The Alliance for the Great Lakes works to protect the Great Lakes for today and tomorrow.
We involve tens of thousands of people each year in advocacy, volunteering, education, and research to ensure the lakes are healthy and safe for all.
