Toledo Harbor Dredged Sediment Study to Be Discussed
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District is about to hold a web meeting that will discuss recently completed study on the Toledo Harbor dredged sediment in the Western Lake Erie Basin and its influence on Harmful Algal Blooms.
The study was completed by engineering consulting firms Ecology and Environment and LimnoTech.
Main aim of the study was to answer the question: “What is the potential for placement of Toledo Harbor dredged material in the Western Lake Erie Basin to influence Harmful Algal Blooms?”
The study was conducted over a period of approximately 18 months and involved a comprehensive literature review, field sampling, laboratory analysis, and state-of-the-science water quality modeling.
Web meeting will be organized on Monday, October 27, 2014, from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT.
