Fertilizer Ban in Effect

It’s during that time that the ground is not able to fully absorb the nutrients in the fertilizer before storms wash them away, and they eventually make their way into Tampa Bay and the Gulf.

According to Kelli Hammer-Levy, division director of environmental management in Pinellas County, high levels of phosphorous and nitrogen in the water can cause algae blooms, which can eventually kill fish and lead to other environmental problems.

Algae Treatment Leads to Massive Fish Kill in Lake Isabella - Lake Isabella has experienced a significant “fish kill” due to low oxygen levels following treatment of an extremely high blue-green algae presence. When the heavy bloom was noted a recommendation was made to close the lake to swimming and boaters and a company was hired to treat the lake with a chemical called SeClear. The following day, hundreds of dead fish were observed lying dead on the bottom and floating on the surface.
