Connecticut's Clean Water Legislation
Excessive phosphorus is the main factor contributing to the decline of Connecticut’s lakes and ponds. High levels of phosphorus lead to excessive algae and aquatic plant growth, reduced water clarity and depleted oxygen levels – all detrimental to the health of these water bodies and the fish and humans who depend on them.

Clean water advocates met at Bantam Lake to propose legislation that would limit the use of phosphorus in lawn fertilizers and add phosphorus clean-up to the qualifying criteria for the Clean Water Fund. Eleven states currently ban or restrict the use of phosphorus in lawn fertilizers to reduce the threat; Connecticut is hoping to become the twelfth.

The bill would limit the use of phosphorus in lawn fertilizers by prohibiting the application to established lawns, requiring a 20-foot setback from any water body, prohibiting the use between November and April, and requiring the phosphorus fertilizers be segregated from other fertilizers at retail and have educational signs displayed at the point of sale.

Kalamazoo River oil spill will impact habitat for years - The oil spill that dumped up to a million gallons of crude into the Kalamazoo River is expected to cause long-term damage to at least a 30-mile stretch of once pristine marshes along the river, destroying habitat for resident geese, ducks, frogs, herons, muskrats and swans for possibly years to come.
