TOLEDO WATER TESTING-TRX-OC-VIDBOX-DISS


ALL NEW RIGHT NOW ---

MORE TESTS OVERNIGHT CONFIRM, TOXINS ARE STILL BEING FOUND IN THE WATER IN TOLEDO, OHIO.

SOME 400-THOUSAND PEOPLE ARE STILL BEING TOLD NOT TO DRINK TAP WATER.

CITY OFFICIALS ISSUED THE WARNING EARLY SATURDAY AFTER TESTS REVEALED THE PRESENCE OF A TOXIN POSSIBLY FROM ALGAE ON LAKE ERIE.

THE STATE IS TRUCKING WATER AND OTHER SUPPLIES TO THE AREA.

REPORTER ANDREW SPENCER HAS A MORE IN-DEPTH LOOK. Return to index of stories...


TOLEDO WATER TESTING-PKG


VOLUNTEERS OUTSIDE WAITE HIGH SCHOOL HANDED OUT CASE AFTER CASE OF BOTTLED WATER.

NATIONAL GUARD TROOPS ALSO SET UP STATIONS WHERE PEOPLE COULD FILL BUCKETS AND JUGS FROM HUGE TANKS OF PURIFIED WATER.

THESE WERE ABOUT THE ONLY OPTIONS AS MANY AS 400-THOUSAND PEOPLE HAD TO STOP USING THEIR TAP WATER, WHEN OFFICIALS REALIZED, LATE FRIDAY, THAT THE WATER SUPPLY HAD BEEN CONTAMINATED.

"You're used to having water all the time. It's something that you're used to, and you just can't have it."

BLOOMS OF ALGAE IN LAKE ERIE CREATE A TOXIN CALLED MICROCYSTIN. WITH THE ALGAE THRIVING, THAT TOXIN ENTERS TOLEDO'S WATER SUPPLY. THE NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION SAYS THE TOXIN CAN CAUSE NAUSEA AND, POTENTIALLY, ACUTE LIVER FAILURE.

THE TAINTED WATER CREATED ANOTHER PROBLEM FOR HOSPITALS IN TOLEDO.

"All weekend, we've only been doing emergency surgeries -- and the issue isn't the surgery itself; it's the instrumentation that's used in the surgery. A big surgical case could have seven trays of instruments that need to be sterilized."

MANY OF THOSE INSTRUMENTS HAD TO BE SHIPPED TO HOSPITALS OUTSIDE OF TOLEDO FOR STERILIZATION.

I'M ANDREW SPENCER, REPORTING Return to index of stories...


TOLEDO WATER TESTING BREAKOUT-OC-SS


SO HOW DID THIS WATER CRISIS HAPPEN?

RESEARCHERS SAID THAT SEWAGE FROM TREATMENT PLANTS AND FERTILIZER FROM FARMS STREAMED INTO LAKE EERIE, TRIGGERING AN ALGAE BLOOM NEAR AN INTAKE VALVE THAT SENDS WATER TO TOLEDO AND MORE THAN A DOZEN SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES.

THE NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION SAYS THIS IS A SYSTEMIC CHALLENGE ON THE GREAT LAKES THAT IS ACTUALLY MUCH BIGGER THAN THIS ONE CRISIS. AND THAT THIS CRISIS COULD JUST BE THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG UNLESS IT'S ADDRESSED.

THE PROBLEMS ON LAKE ERIE STRETCH BACK A DECADE, AND EARLIER THIS YEAR STATE LAWMAKERS PASSED REFORMS, BUT HAVE NOT MANDATED ANY RESTRICTIONS. Return to index of stories...
