Minnesota Works to stop Lake Winnipeg's deterioration

| 1 Comment

Officials in Minnesota, North Dakota and Manitoba are planning a way to fix the dead-zone of Lake Winnipeg to improve its fishery health.

According to KSTP the lake's health is declining due to nutrients like phosphorus flowing in through the Red River and causing large algae blooms.

"The new research is indicating we're getting closer and closer to a tipping point where the lake would start to deteriorate rather fast," Lance Yohe, Red River Basin Commission executive director, told Minnesota Public Radio.

Some possible solutions include using non-phosphorous detergents, natural buffers to filter farm field runoff, and fixing failed septic systems.

Great job on the blog. Just fyi, you have two of these entries listed. And I can't find the lead analysis, which is fine. Just want you to know you duplicated a post.

Nice work. Keep it up.
