A couple of weeks ago, we shared Peggy’s story with you, which speaks to the devastating health impacts of blue-green algae blooms caused by excess phosphorus pollution in our waters.
Peggy’s story was one of many that we heard while we visited Menomonie, Wisconsin, a community that experiences foul algae blooms in lakes Tainter and Menomin every year.
Today we bring you part two of our video series highlighting the impact of phosphorus pollution on Wisconsin — As you’ll see in the video, phosphorus pollution is a serious drag on the economies of communities throughout Wisconsin that, like Menomonie, experience algae blooms.
If we don’t act now to clean up our waters, we can expect more and more lakes to experience such blooms.
