Emergency Response: Toledo Water Crisis

It was one week ago that Ohio's fourth-largest city, Toledo (with a population around a half-million), experienced a water crisis in which algal blooms potentially affected Lake Erie, Toledo's water supply. This prompted a "Do Not Drink/Do Not Boil" Advisory for the whole of the community, essentially shutting down taps in homes, businesses, and city infrastructure. The advisory was lifted two days later, and Toledo works to get back to normal. Today we look more into that response--and emergency collaboration in general--with the help of a professor here in Lawrence at the University of Kansas. Dr. Holly Goerdel is an associate professor in the KU School of Public Affairs and Administration, who has researched emergency management planning.
