Post a photo of your local water with a short description.
The “Mighty Maumee” (the Maumee River) runs through Northwest Ohio. It is a tributary of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes. Locals now think about how the land connects to the river and is important to keep clean. Last summer (2014) the Maumee River delivered agricultural runoff rich in phosphates to the lake. This was one of the factors that led to a harmful algae bloom. The water was unsafe to drink for a few days. We are proud of our leaders and citizens for taking good care to prevent this from happening again.
