The Reek of the Lake

A recent story on WCPN offers an explanation for the scent roils up from the waters that lull and lap, tired, green, and gravity drawn, against the shoreline:

Hundreds of residents along the Lake Erie shore from Cleveland to Erie, Pennsylvania called authorities last week to report a strong odor of rotten eggs. U.S. and Canadian scientists are theorizing the smell was hydrogen sulfate, a gas formed from the decay of organic wastes taking place in the lake's so-called 'dead zone.
