Water that is poisoned by chemicals or from algae or other natural causes: Residents of Toledo, Ohio endured a second day without drinking tap water after the city and its surrounding areas were instructed not to drink their tap water, as tests showed the presence of aquatoxin that may have come from an algae bloom on Lake Erie.

People were also instructed to avoid boiling the water, which would increase the concentration of aquatoxins.
