About 15 years ago just after he and his family arrived in town a Hillsdale utilities Board member asked him about the phosphates in the areas lakes and Rivers. At that time there was a growing concern for the health of the great lakes particularly Lake Erie which were becoming clogged with phosphates primarily from household detergents. If allowed to continue the phosphates would have directly contributed to the death of the lakes. With students from his classes at Hillsdale College Johnson began a study of Baw Beese Lake and the St. Joseph River. A it was interesting to me because it was a practical outlet of what we see in the lab a said Johnson who was asked in 1981 to join the utilities Board in part because of his expertise about water problems. He was recently reappointed for a second five year term. In addition to providing electricity to the Hillsdale Community the utilities Board is responsible for providing water and waste water treatment for the City. A this advice to the Board regarding the waste water treatment Plant has been very beneficial a said Ronald d. Neer Hillsdale a director of utilities. A i feel this is a Good town and this gives me a Chance to give a Little Back a Johnson said of his willingness to work on the Board which meets every other tuesday. His service to others extends to the presbyterian Church where he has been an elder for several years and a member of the Exchange club. He has also been an executive Board member of midwestern association of chemistry teachers in Liberal arts colleges.

Karen 19, is a student at Hillsdale College Ray 15, is in High school and Cheryl 13, is a seventh grader. Penny Johnson a wife who shares his interest in teaching is a pre school teacher for the Hillsdale intermediate school District. Perhaps because he grew up a few Miles from Lake Erie in Norwalk Ohio Johnson has always had a desire to be near water. After accepting the position at the College he wanted to find some water where he could launch his Motorboat. A i wanted to find out How dirty it was to Johnson before i put my boat in it a he said joking about what got him started in testing Baw Beese Lake. A actually it was pretty now the water that Johnson has helped to keep clean provides him with a place to fish and to pull his kids on water skis.
