Hidden Streambed Phosphorus Key to Lake Cleanup
Millions of dollars have been spent to reduce the amount of nutrient-laden soil that runs off farm fields into Dane County waterways, where it creates masses of weeds, algae and bacteria.

Why then aren’t the lakes getting cleaner? A growing body of research points to tons of fertilizer-rich muck that began piling up in stream beds long before recent conservation programs began.

A county study found that even if no additional nutrients washed off the farm fields — something nobody expects — stream bottoms by themselves for the next 60 years would ooze phosphorus into the lakes at levels exceeding the maximum now allowed under state law.

Hydrilla threatens the Finger Lakes - The plant hydrilla, was found late last summer in the creeks at the south end of Cayuga Lake at Ithaca. An initial control effort to beat it back last fall had failed and New York state officials have said they can only promise $50,000 in state money and possibly $380,000 in federal money could come through for this year as well.
