In 2014, Toledo residents were cut off from clean drinking water due to a massive bloom of toxic algae, yet President Trump has put forth an EPA budget that zeroes out funds to the Great Lakes. That means, instead of the $300 million promised to the initiative, it will receive a whopping $0.
Those who have experienced water crises firsthand know the importance of clean water programs. Zeroing out the GLRI budget shows a complete disregard for drinking water crises popping up across the nation and will affect the more than 3 million Ohioans who rely on Lake Erie for drinking water.
