Officials blame the death of the fish on algae blooms for creating conditions leading to the fish kill. An early spring and hot summer created optimum algae growth, while heavy June rainstorms added nutrients to the water.

Chemical Promotes Dangerous Algae Blooms - Wisconsin is not fully enforcing strict phosphorus limits adopted two years ago to reduce lake-algae blooms that make people sick. The state Legislature in 2010 approved DNR regulations intended to cut down on the amount of phosphorus running into waterways, where it causes algae to grow so thick that the water turns to green soup.
