One of the best things we can do on Marco Island to clean-up our waterways is to reduce the amount of Nitrogen that we add to them. If the levels of nitrogen in our canals gets beyond a safe level it can cause overgrowth of algae and other things which cause murkiness, killing of healthy sea grass, and loss of fish and other marine life. 

This article, shared by Dr Andrew Tyler, a long-time advocate of clean waterways and beaches explains how adding fertilizer to areas that use reuse water for irrigation can be a major source of unwanted nitrogen in our waterways.
