Why is it that human waste must be treated and manure allowed to spread on the ground - and often on frozen ground? Soon we will have 10-15,000 more dairy cows in the Lake Erie watershed that will be owned by a Wisconsin firm that reportedly has violations there. Lake Erie gets green enough every year but we keep getting more and more factory farms and more and more manure that get the lake greener and greener. It seems the rights of land trump the rights of water. Lynn Henning is a great lady that does a great job. We can help with the manure problem by asking Ohio legislators to place a ban on manure on frozen ground -0hio has a ban for Grand Lake St. Marys why not Lake Erie??
