BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Bowling Green State University is planning to host a two-day conference looking at how algae blooms are becoming a problem on Lake Erie and throughout the world.

The conference will be held April 13 and 14.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Science Foundation are partners in the event.

Organizers say there will be speakers from China and Austria as well as the United States.

The impact from algae was felt in Ohio and southwestern Michigan last August when toxins contaminated the water supply in the Toledo area for two days.

Researchers say many different varieties of harmful algae have fouled lakes and rivers across the world.
