No easy solutions to Ohio lake algae

COLUMBUS - A group of international algae experts say there are no quick or easy solutions to clear algae from Lake Erie and Grand Lake St. Marys in Ohio.

In the case of Grand Lake St. Marys, it could even take decades.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that experts spoke about the algae problem in Ohio's lakes at the EcoSummit 2012 conference this week in Columbus.

Harry Gibbons of, Seattle-based Tetra Tech lumped Grand Lake St. Marys in with other lakes around the world that suffer from summertime blooms of toxic blue-green algae.

The algae are common in most lakes but grow thick feeding on phosphorus from manure, fertilizers and sewage that rains wash into nearby streams.
