Michigan moving to Ban Phosphorus Based Fertilizers

There has been a local trend to ban the use of phosphorus based fertilizers around the country.  Now the Michigan State Legislature is taking up this cause.  They will be working on a bill to ban the use of these materials statewide.  Phosphorus is considered the key nutrient that drives aquatic weed and more specifically algae problems.  Lake restoration programs generally focus on reduction of inputs of this material to lakes and removal of phosphorus from the water column using techniques like Alum applications.  Keep an eye on this one.
