MORE: re: better water quality, (continued from Better Water Quality )

At a  meeting/conference of the Empire State Soil and Water Conservation Society 1977 or 1978
several scientist presented data relating to the negative environmental effects of turf fertilization  on water quality

One local Mass. community that we know of has a ban on applications of fertilizers etc. within the borders  of a resource area (pond, stream etc..)

3.8 APPLICATION OF HERBICIDES, PESTICIDES, FERTILIZERS OR SALT
http://www.town.sturbridge.ma.us/Public_Documents/SturbridgeMA_ConsInfo/Regulations/GeneralProvisions3.8

other towns and cites have no such regulations.......

Ending fertilization around the borders of your pond may not keep algae from increasing, but continue use of fertilizers  would be similar to putting a fire out with gasoline.

Use of aerating fountains or any other treatment in Massachusetts requires permit from a local  Conservation Commission.

Nationally you may want to check with your town, county, or state, conservation commission or agency before purchase of any pond treatment.
