Plan seeks phosphorus cuts to stop Lake Erie algae

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — "What works for you might not work for me, depending on the size of the crop, location and the type of crops you're growing," Antosch said. "We can all take different paths and get to the same spot."

Pollack said voluntary practices, while helpful, aren't enough.

"If they were succeeding, we would not be suffering the worst algal blooms in the history of the lake," she said.

To cut down on urban runoff, the report recommends stepped-up use of "green infrastructure" such as permeable pavement that lets rainwater soak into the ground. It calls for a 10 percent increase in coastal wetland acreage and more research and monitoring of phosphorus levels.
