COLUMBUS, Ohio-Harmful algal blooms dangerous to human health and the Lake Erie ecosystem-such as the one that shut down Toledo's water supply for two days in 2014-could become a problem of the past. A new report shows that if farmers apply agricultural best management practices on half the cropland in the Maumee River watershed, the amount of total phosphorus and dissolved reactive phosphorus leaving the watershed would drop by 40 percent in an average rainfall year - the amount agreed to in the 2012 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement between the U.S. and Canada.

By the latter half of this century, toxic algal blooms like the one that cut off drinking water to the city of Toledo in 2014 will no longer be the exception, but the norm, a study suggests. While researchers have long suspected that climate change will lead to stronger and more frequent blooms, a new fusion of climate models and watershed models has proven those suspicions right: For Lake Erie, at least, the number of severe blooms will likely double over the next 100 years.
