The 2nd Annual Rotary Lake Erie Watershed Conference brought leaders together to exchange ideas on how to save the waters of Lake Erie and other fresh water threatened by nutrient pollution that causes harmful algal blooms.

Mary Jane Slaton spoke on how the City of Ft. Wayne stopped its storm water from flushing their sewers out into the river. Now, they are sending their rainwater right down underground to recharge the groundwater.

The conference was held at the SeaGate Convention Centre
