literature on avoiding fertilization near lakes.

Asked September 28, 2020, 1:15 PM EDT

Hi , I'm looking for a brochure/info on the importance of avoiding fertilizer near lakes. I'd like to pass the information on to my neighbors who are not aware of the hazards. Can you help me with this? Thank you, Machelle Knochenhauer

Machelle,

Hello and thank you for using MSU Extension ask-an-expert with your fertilizer near lakes question. The specific brochure on the topic can be found at https://www.canr.msu.edu/resources/smart_soils_what_you_can_do_to_reduce_phosphorus andhttps://www.canr.msu.edu/home_gardening/tip_sheets/ for more. I also direct direct you to EGLE website for inland lakes and streams https://www.michigan.gov/egle/0,9429,7-135-3313_3681_28734---,00.html;
