This is good news BUT we already know what needs to be done to improve the water quality in Lake Erie: http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2013/03/28/1216006110.abstract
We do not need more research but action. Unfortunately, this needs more muscle as it will need to enforce long suggested agricultural practices thus going against very powerful lobbies.
