LEA Pulls Out of Landmark Federal Lawsuit

"We believe it is the principled thing for us to do."

Cornell Agronomy Ph.D. tells how OEPA's "fixes" don't work 

In this 30 minute video, Dr. Deanna Osmond, author of dozens of studies on soil nutrients, speaks at an Ohio State University conference Sept. 8, 2021. Her presentation describes why many of the "Best Management Practices" the Ohio EPA is using to draft TMDLs (total maximum daily loads) for Lake Erie are either ineffective or actually increase the Dissolved Reactive Phosphorus fueling toxic algal blooms every summer.
