Press Reslease Lake Erie Algal bloom Minimize



  Press Release:


August 6, 2015


Lake Erie Algal Bloom and the Toledo W ater System


Monroe County water  customers in the southern geographic area of the county are subject to water advisories issued by the City of Toledo Water System.  The cause of the advisories is from Lake Eries annual harmful Algal bloom (HAB). These HAB organisms have the potential to produce  toxins that  may pose a risk to human and animal  health.   HABs  occur  when  excess  nitrogen  and  phosphorus  are  present  in bodies of water. Such nutrients can come from runoff of over-fertilized fields and lawns, from malfunctioning septic systems and from livestock pens. When HAB are present in sources where intakes lines for drinking water are located, then the potential exists for the     HAB    to    enter    into    the    municipal    drinking    water   supply    system.




Monitoring  points  have  been  established  in Lake  Erie  as  well  as  within the water treatment and distribution system  to  detect  toxins.  Several times over  the last  two weeks these sensors have detected toxin levels near the intakes in Lake Erie. Precautionary advisories may be issued from clear to do not drink.  Advisories have been issued up to watch level based on these detection levels over the past two weeks.


Lake Erie is the source of water for the South County Water District. This water district provides drinking water throughout  southern Monroe County using water supplied by the City of Toledo. The communities of Bedford, Luna Pier, Erie Township and parts of LaSalle Township include approximately 30,000 customer accounts are served by the South County Water District.


In the planning for the possibility of any water emergency Monroe County has taken steps to improve preparedness in the event conditions warrant action. Such emergency may include orders to not drink the water. The County and its preparedness partners conducted an assessment aimed to evaluate the potential impacts of the Toledo water crisis on households, the effectiveness of public communications, demographic of the population residing in the affected areas, and to identify effective approaches to current and future health events.

This condition is something that may occur each summer in Lake Erie and residents should prepare for this as they would for severe storms by creating a Home Emergency Kit including a source of drinking water.

Residents  should  plan  ahead  for  any  possible  water  emergency  and  have  readily available a supply of drinking water for up to 3 days for all persons residing in their home or dwelling. The average person will need 3 gallons of water for drinking; food preparation, and hygiene. Bottled water should be consumed or used according to the expiration date  marked  on the  bottle  label.  In addition,  waterless personal hygiene supplies should also be considered an essential part of any Home Emergency Kit.

Mark A. Hammond, Monroe County Emergency Management Director.

Additional monitoring is being conducted and a on line tool makes it easy for you to monitor the conditions of the Toledo Water System.

Master Plan Information Minimize

The City of Luna Pier Master Plan, adopted in 2010, continues to be the guiding document for past and future developments for the City of Luna Pier.   The Master Plan, adopted in 2010, centers around the transformation of the City both before and after the closing of the J.R Whiting Power Generating Facility which will occur in April 2016.   To compensate for this drastic reduction in the tax base of the City, City Leaders have had to make plans to transform the City to a placemaking community in order to attract developers and visitors to invest in the City and to create a place that visitors and future visitors will return over and over and participate in the economic revival of the City.  

The first project that resulted from the Master Plan was the construction of the Luna Pier Light House Project built in 2012-2013 with a grant from the State of Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund in the amount of $460,000.   The second project to be completed was the improvements to Lakewood Avenue  that included the reconstruction of Lakewood Avenue  with funding from MDOT’s Major Street funding.

The next project is the projected renovation of Luna Pier Road from Harold Drive East to the Lighthouse with funding from Michigan Department of Transportation’s Transportation Alternative Program for streetscape renovations and upgrades and a complete resurfacing of Luna Pier Road with funding from the City’s Major Street Fund.  The City will be required to match up to $130,000 from local funds for the streetscape renovations.  

These projects will be the impetus for future commercial investment in the City in order to add to the tax base and increase revenue to the City.  These revenue increases will be used to restore services that had to be reduced or eliminated because of the massive reduction the City’s tax base as a result of the closure of the J.R. Whiting Plant.

Without  the vision of the Master Planning that was done in 2009-2010 these projects may not have been possible.   With the plan in place the City becomes eligible for outside funding that may not have been available to them otherwise.
