As Asian carp migrate north, concerns spreads from Ohio lakes to rivers

  #
Ohio’s U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says his newest bill to try to curtail the spread of Asian carp shouldn’t cost much because its primary goal is common sense collaboration. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more.
Democrat Brown is introducing the bill with his Republican counterpart from Pennsylvania, Pat Toomey.  It would designate the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as the lead agency in slowing the spread of the invasive carp, and would share information and technology among other federal, state and local agencies – and with Congress.  more...




Menomonee River overhaul will improve fish access

  #

Removing 1,100 feet of concrete later this year from the bed of the Menomonee River upstream of the Wisconsin Ave. bridge comes with the promise of fishing for salmon, steelhead and walleye - or just watching their spawning runs - at Hart Park in Wauwatosa and all the way to Menomonee Falls, a state fisheries biologist said Wednesday.

The river's concrete floor from Wisconsin Ave. north to the Canadian Pacific Railway bridge forms a steep chute with fast-flowing and shallow water that is impassable for all but a few Lake Michigan fish, said Will Wawrzyn, a biologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in Milwaukee.  more...

Ice not all it's cracked up to be

  #

“Thick and blue, tried and true; thin and crispy, way too risky.”

Ice fishermen have long resorted to this saying when evaluating whether it’s safe to venture onto a frozen lake or pond. An easier saying to remember, however, is simply “when in doubt, don’t go out.”

After a week of the coldest temperatures north central Ohio has seen in four years, ponds, lakes and even some rivers and streams appear to have frozen nicely.  more...

Ohio solar project hit with setback while Ontario boosts renewable power

  #
U.S., the Canadian province of Ontario announced that it will shut down its last coal-fired power plants by the end of 2013, a year ahead of schedule.

The two events are a stark contrast in how bordering nations pursue an advanced energy economy as the debate about climate change continues following record-setting extreme weather in 2012.

Cosmetics ingredient tainting state lakes

  #

An antibacterial widely used in soaps and cosmetics that mostly goes down the drain is slowly converting to toxins at the bottom of many of Minnesota's lakes and rivers.

A new analysis of sediment in eight lakes and rivers used by municipal wastewater treatment plants found that amounts of the antibacterialial triclosan and the toxins it forms have been steadily increasing since it was first used in Dial soap in the 1960s.

The research by scientists at the University of Minnesota and the Science Museum of Minnesota is the first to show how pervasive the contaminant has become in tiny lakes and giant rivers, and that the same is likely true across the country.  more...

Lighthouse restoration stalls over location spat

  #
Efforts to restore a historic Port Clinton lighthouse that once guided boaters into the entrance of the Portage River have stalled because the city and the lighthouse’s owners can’t agree on where the structure should be relocated.
 
The Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy, which is spearheading the project, wants the wooden lighthouse placed at Waterworks Park, just off the Lake Erie shore near the river's mouth once restoration is completed. The city wants it farther from the waterfront.
