The algal blooms produce toxins and suck the oxygen from the water, creating “dead zones” where nothing can live. Phosphorus runoff from farms is considered the leading culprit, while sewage-treatment plants and septic tanks are sources of the pollution as well.

However, the group said it was not made public which plants are using these chemicals and into which waterways the chemical is being discharged.
