What the N is Going On?
Investigating Nitrates in Southeast MN Streams
Plants need nitrogen to grow. It’s often used as a fertilizer for crops and lawns. But when excess nitrates reach our aquifers, rivers and streams, they can impact local drinking water quality and add to algae problems downstream. Justin Watkins of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will share what’s happening with nitrate pollution and pollution prevention in Southeast Minnesota and how you can be part of the solution.
Join us on Thursday, July 11, 6:30 pm, Cascade Meadow Wetland and Environmental Science Center, 2900--19th St. NW, Rochester. This program is part of the monthly Zumbro Watershed Partership (www.myzumbro.org) "Water Ways Speaker Series" that takes place the second Thursday of each month at the Cascade Meadow Science Center.
