    This week 400,000 people in Toledo, Ohio, could not drink the water. The city’s water supply from Lake Erie was polluted with a toxin linked to the overgrowth of algae. While the water is now safe to drink, harmful algal blooms are not going away any time soon in Ohio or elsewhere in the United States and around the globe. VOA's Rosanne Skirble has the story.
