The state is calling for new farm fertilizer runoff limits for western Lake Erie to combat toxic algae blooms. 

The process includes a close review of the pollution sources and making an action plan. Environmental groups had been critical of the state's past efforts. A pending federal lawsuit has been seeking to force new regulatory standards that the state now appears poised to adopt.
