Ottawa River showing signs of a comeback

After more than 22 years of restoration projects costing millions of dollars, Toledo’s long-beleaguered Ottawa River — once considered Ohio’s most polluted — is showing more signs of a comeback. The latest came this week, with an announcement by Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Director Craig Butler that state health advisories against eating all fish species were replaced with less restrictive recommendations — not entirely a clean bill of health, mind you, but another step in the right direction for a river not expected to be fully healed until 2030.
