NOAA, partners predict significant harmful algal bloom in western Lake Erie this summer

NOAA and its research partners predict that western Lake Erie will have a significant bloom of cyanobacteria, a toxic blue-green algae, during the 2014 bloom season in late summer. However, the predicted bloom is expected to be smaller than last year's intense bloom, and considerably less than the record-setting 2011 bloom.

Bloom impacts will vary across the lake's western basin and are classified by an estimate of both its concentration and how far it spreads.
