Ohio Congress members ask NASA to fund algal bloom warning system

US: Ohio Congress members, whose districts abut Lake Erie, want the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to keep funding a new satellite-based system to track algal blooms that can contaminate drinking water. Last summer, an algal bloom rendered Toledo-area water undrinkable for several days. The Congress members want NASA to fund the programme at the national level, so the local facility can use its money on other projects to benefit the community.
