GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) – The EPA’s regional leader says the Bay of Green Bay could develop the same type of algae that caused Toledo Ohio’s water to be undrinkable for several days.

During a visit to Milwaukee, EPA Midwest administrator Susan Hedman said Green Bay has significant blooms which are ripe for the development of blue-green algae and other types.

Phosphorus runoff from farms appeared to feeding blue-green algae that’s related to a toxin in the Toledo area’s water supplies for 400,000 people.
