It was interesting to read Jim Jordan talk about issues, including the recent outbreak of algae on the western basin of Lake Erie that shut down Toledo for a few days.
He also mentioned Grand Lake St. Marys but that is “a little different, being for recreation and outdoor activities.”
I wonder if Jordan and a lot of his other counterparts just don’t know or need to be told that Celina gets its drinking water from Grand Lake. Thanks to an aggressive program of treatment options in Celina, the city has been able to keep ahead of the problems that comes from treating groundwater that is pretty funky before adding the algae issue into the mix.
I think that the water issues that are now becoming common all over Ohio must be addressed by legislators and the governor as they continue to look the other way while knowing what is really causing the problems.
At least when there was a Democratic governor and one branch of the Statehouse leaning Democrat, the environment was a higher priority. With what we have now, I don’t think so!
There is an election coming soon and changes can be made by looking at candidates that can reverse what is taking place in Columbus by killing local governments by cutting revenues under a false “balanced budget” scenario.
