Lake Erie algae a threatto drinking water
TOLEDO (AP) — Toxins from blobs of algae on western Lake Erie are infiltratingwater treatment plants along the shoreline,forcing cities to spend a lot more money tomake sure their drinking water is safe.It got so bad last month that one townshiptold its 2,000 residents not to drink or use thewater coming from their taps.The cost of testing and treating the water isadding up quickly — the city of Toledo willspend an extra $1 million this year to combatthe toxins while a neighboring county is con-sidering a fee increase next year to cover theadded expenses.Algae blooms during the summer and earlyfall have turned the water into a pea soupcolor in recent years. The unsightly surfacehas scared away tourists, and toxins producedby the algae have contributed to oxygen-deprived dead zones where fish can’t survive.The toxins also are a threat to the drinkingwater that the lake provides for 11 millionpeople.The annual algae blooms have been con-centrated around the western end of Lake Erie— though a few have spread to the Clevelandarea — and have affected water treatmentplants in Toledo and other cities that dot thewater’s edge in northern Ohio.The algae growth is fed by phosphorousfrom farm fertilizer runoff and other sources,leaving behind toxins that can kill animals andsicken humans.Tests on drinking water in CarrollTownship, which is just west of Toledo,showed the amount of toxins had increased somuch in early September that officials decidedto order residents to stop using the water fortwo days until they could hook up to anotherwater supply.It was believed to be the first time a cityhas banned residents from using the waterbecause of toxins from algae in the lake.“I wasn’t sure how dangerous it was,but we wanted to be cautious,” said HenryBiggert, the township’s water plant superin-tendent.The township’s treatment plant is nowback online, but the water is being filteredand treated over a longer period to remove thetoxins, he said.What makes combating these toxins a chal-lenge for operators of water treatment plantsis that there are no standards on how to handlethe problem or federal guidelines on what isa safe amount in drinking water. Plus, eachwater treatment facility is unique.Plant operators along the lake in Ohio havebeen teaming up to figure out what worksbest.“We’re out there scrambling around,” saidKelly Frey, Ottawa County’s sanitary engi-neer. “It’s just been do the best you can.”The county, he said, tests the water threetimes a week while adding a chemical calledactivated carbon to absorb the algae beforefiltering it. The expense of treating the watermay require an increase in water rates nextyear of a couple of dollars a month for theaverage family, Frey said.
Toledo prison hitby rising violence
TOLEDO (AP) — Authorities at the state prison inToledo have seen inmate violence continuing to risedespite a series of changes, with four slayings in 13months.The Blade reports that after the Toledo CorrectionalInstitution’s first homicide last year, staffing wasincreased on nights and weekends and a second investi-gator added. Then another inmate was killed in his cellthis year, and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation andCorrection added nine officers to the maximum-securityprison.There have been two more deadly assaults this year,the latest coming Oct. 6 when Michael Dodson, 38, diedat a hospital after being assaulted in his cell. The LucasCounty coroner’s office said he died from blunt-forceinjuries to his neck and head. Inmate James Oglesby waskilled in August after being attacked by a metal baseballbat in a recreation area.Ohio statistics show the four slayings are the most inthe past 13 months of any state prison. Authorities saythere are more fights, too. The prison investigated 136incidents of inmate-on-inmate violence in 2010-12. Theprison began in 2011 taking in maximum-security pris-oners from around the state, putting two inmates in eachcell to deal with statewide overcrowding.State prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said amongthe changes at Toledo have been using a merit dorm forwell-behaved inmates isolated from the most violent,and extra surveillance cameras were installed.The Blade said a legislatively established commit-tee that monitors prisons found that inmate-on-inmateassaults jumped about 113 percent and inmate-on-staff assaults were up some 74 percent from 2010 to 2012at the Toledo prison. Watchdog groups have also foundhigh employee turnover at Toledo.Guard union officials say the staff additions haven’tbeen enough, and more is needed.“The mood inside the prison is that we need morestaff. We have too many inmates,” said Ryan Ochmanek,a corrections officer and union steward. “We’re over-crowded and, with double-bunking, we need more staff.”The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio said lack of funding to staff prisons and inmate overcrowding cre-ate dangerous situations in prisons.
Ohio student loan defaultrate among highest
DAYTON (AP) — Ohio’s student loan default rate is amongthe 10 highest in the country with nearly 30,000 Ohioansdefaulting on federal loans they were supposed to start repay-ing in 2010, a newspaper reported.A total of 29,500 Ohioans are among more than 600,000former college students defaulting on student loans for thethree-year period, the Dayton Daily News reports. Ohio’sdefault rate over that time increased from 13.2 percent to 16.2percent, according to new data from the U.S. Department of Education.The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reports thatmore than 7 million borrowers are currently in default on afederal or private student loan, meaning they missed paymentfor nine months.Defaults leave borrowers facing problems that include latefees, added interests, wage garnishment and court costs.“The consequences of default are so severe,” said LaurenAsher, president of The Institute for College Access andSuccess.She said the debt can follow borrowers for the rest of theirlives, ruining their credit and making it difficult to buy a caror rent an apartment. It can also limit job prospects and makeit impossible to get federal grants or loans to return to school,Asher said.
