The only option at hand appears to be aiding in the reduction of toxins if only to protect life when blooms happen. At the moment, there are numerous efforts underway to help protect the Lake from eutrophication such that it can be restored to a more pristine water quality. Many of these were started over twenty years ago but due to the rise in blooms, have become more active and funded. The progress may take years and still won't completely rid the lake and surrounding areas from the algal menace. Yet, over the coming decade, if these methods are indeed implemented, the observations of algal blooms will return to the days of the 19th century when they were rare and small. In turn, this can help to minimize or perhaps even prevent the occurrence of those unwelcome states of emergency.
