Algae Bloom

Title

Algae Bloom

Description

The effect of climate change accelerates the increased average temperatures of our ponds and lakes. In turn, it also accelerates existing eutrophication effects, including low oxygen concentrations that impact the health of our fish and other fresh-water animals.

Eutrophication: excessive richness of nutrients in a lake or other body of water, frequently due to runoff from the land, which causes a dense growth of plant life and death of animal life from lack of oxygen.
