Water Emergency Toledo, OH area

Toledo, Ohio was tested today...starting long before the crack of dawn.

The facts were released sometime around 1:00am...and before 6am in some places....bottled water supplies were knocked out.

Toledo area city water supplies supposedly come from Lake Erie and today the microsystin level apparently was measured at an unsafe level for drinkability. Which then of course flows over into all sorts of other avenues such as handwashing and showers and produce/vegetable rinsing and the like.

Even sites such as quotes the incident.

Needless to say, things have gotten a little interesting around the areas that this directly effects. Restaurants were closed in the Perrysburg, OH area today.  And who knows how long this may persist?

It feels like a storm has hit the area based specifically on the limitations of water usage. Regardless, it's not fun.
