7,400 Pounds of Phosphorus Removed From Lakes
The Madison area is making real progress at cleaning up its lakes.

About 7,400 pounds of weed-feeding phosphorus was diverted from reaching our waterways last year, according to the 2014 State of the Lakes annual report, released this week.

That’s significant, because every pound of phosphorus can produce 500 pounds of lake algae. It’s those algae blooms that close beaches and stink up the shoreline with green soupy muck.

But there’s still a long way to go to get to the shared community goal of reducing phosphorus in our Yahara chain of lakes by 50 percent by 2025. That’s the level scientists believe is needed to consistently have clean lakes every summer. Reaching that goal will require diverting an estimated 46,200 pounds of phosphorus, which is six times more than what’s been accomplished so far.
