Sick of the weeds in the lake?

Excess phosphorus entering the lake from fertilizers and household products are strangling Lake Simcoe and our rivers by causing an overgrowth of aquatic weeds and algae.

Like to fish in the lake?

Over 90% of the cold water fish in the lake are stocked because they can’t maintain a healthy population. When aquatic weeds decompose they suck the oxygen out of the lower layers of the lake.

What can one household do?

1kg of chemical fertilizer can produce 1000 kg of aquatic weeds. Every household can have a significant impact on the health of the lake.
