Algae is a fast growing problem that has been popping up in water supplies more and more frequently. However, there are ways to prevent algae growth. For example: Proper and quick clean up of pets droppings will help prevent the over fertilization of algae. Making sure to not give the land too much water will keep the growth of algae at bay. Also, collecting rain water is a great way to make sure that the water you drink is fresh and not contaminated.
- Algae levels are up in water systems, which are affected by everyday actions
- Determining what nutrition the soil needs will help reduce chemical run off by only putting those nutrients in the soil
- Being cognizant of water is another way of reducing algae, such as using less water for lawns and collecting and using rain water
