Toledo, OH, United States (NewsBahn) – Toledo’s tap water is clear of toxins and is safe to use after a three-day scare, according to the city’s mayor.
Southeast Michigan residents were among 400,000 people warned to avoid using their tap water after toxins were found at the northwestern Ohio treatment plant over the weekend.
A buildup of Lake Erie algae was likely the cause for the toxins, the mayor said.
The Ohio National Guard and other state agencies distributed bottled water to residents during the mini-crisis.
“We would like to thank our community for their patience and their support during this water emergency system as well as all of those who assisted during our community’s moment of challenge,” Mayor D. Michael Collins said in a statement.
