EGLE presents educational webinar series on Lake Erie algal blooms
October 5, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Because knowledge is power, EGLE will present an educational webinar series, “Taking Action on Lake Erie,” to take an inside look at ways the state and partners are working together to enhance stewardship of the land and improve water quality in Michigan’s portion of the Western Lake Erie Basin.
The series begins with a session 11 a.m.-noon Wednesday, Oct. 5, highlighting agriculture inventory planning and implementation in the Western Lake Erie Basin led by EGLE’s Nonpoint Source Program and implemented by local conservation districts.
The agricultural inventory process utilizes modeling, desktop analysis, and a field inventory to collect site-specific data to locate and prioritize agricultural sites that have the potential to impact water quality. The goal is to implement agricultural best management practices on sites with the greatest potential to reduce phosphorus loading and improve water quality. This is an opportunity for the public, agency partners, and anyone who wants to know what Michigan is doing to reduce nutrient loading to Lake Erie.
Information and registration are available on the event website. Questions about the webinar may be directed to Michelle Selzer, Lake Erie coordinator in EGLE’s Water Resources Division, at SelzerM@Michigan.gov. Questions about registration may be directed to training and outreach coordinators Alana Berthold, BertholdA@Michigan.gov, or Joel Roseberry, RoseberryJ@Michigan.gov.
