Toledo adds page on website for residents to track water quality after contamination last year


TOLEDO, Ohio — The city of Toledo has launched a new online water quality dashboard for residents.

The new page on the northwest Ohio city's website includes a gauge that ranks drinking water each day as clear, watch, caution, pre-school advisory or do not drink.

The water quality web page comes less than a year after algae in Lake Erie contaminated drinking water for 400,000 people in Toledo and southeastern Michigan in August.

Toledo Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson tells WTOL-TV ( ) it's important for residents to get accurate information on the city's water rather than rely on rumors or misinformation, and the dashboard offers them a way to do so.
