The 15th annual Great Lakes Water Conference, sponsored by the College of Law and its Legal Institute of the Great Lakes, featured three panels of experts. The Algae panel explored legal solutions to the harmful algal blooms plaguing Lake Erie; the Pipelines panel focused on challenges arising from an important network of petroleum pipelines near valuable water resources; and the More Hot Topics speakers discussed a controversial new rule defining the scope of the Clean Water Act, a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision impacting impaired waters, and a proposed diversion of water out of the Great Lakes basin.
