Health of our Lakes

I finished watching the Health of our Lakes video. It was very informative and eye opening about lakes that I have fished, swam in, and hiked around. I was aware of the algae in Fernan, but I did not realize that it was also threatening CDA Lake and Hayden Lake. I am away with a few questions. What causes the phosphorous? Is it from the mining? How do the lake’s residents contribute to the phosphorous problem? What can they do to minimize this? I found the floating wet lands an aesthetic solution, and am interested to hear more about the success or lack of in the future.
