Years of irresponsible development have resulted in devastating damage to waterbodies, across the United States. Published studies demonstrate the  impact of toxins from septic systems and runoff which raise water temperatures over time, eventually resulting in the death of the important microbes and bacteria which balance the ecosystem. Nitrogen, emanating from septic systems, has been identified as a key culprit in the excess nutrients that cause algae blooms. High nutrient levels, particularly nitrogen and phosphorous, are key causes of algae blooms. Blooms can harm marine life, pets and humans. The algae works to suppress oxygen eventually killing off fish, harming marine life and posing health hazards to humans and pets.
