Fertilizers & Water Quality

It is important to avoid phosphate in our lawn fertilizer, laundry detergents and other cleaning supplies.   Always look for safe phosphate-free products to help protect our precious resource.

Maine Dep of Environmental Projection tell us “Phosphorus is like junk food for algae causing it to grow out of control, turning out waters green, lowering water quality and even killing fish.”  For more information on protecting our pond from fertilizers, click here.
