Take Action

Combat nutrient pollution
Please cIDL TIFF fileontact your state senator and representative, as well as Governor Holcomb, to express your concern regarding nutrient pollution and encourage them to take action.


Clean it up
Every year communities and organizations across Indiana gather for river clean up events. Organize with a club or group and join in. The events are a great way to meet people, raise awareness and educate others. Plus, you’re outside enjoying time with family and friends.

Phosphorus-free green lawn
Go phosphorus-free. It is estimated that just one pound of phosphorus in the water will produce 500 pounds of blue-green algae. Much of the phosphorus  (phosphate) you apply actually runs off the lawn before penetrating the soil. That means it gets into the lakes and streams contributing to the blue-green algae bloom and growth of other undesirable aquatic plants.
