Also, as a reminder regarding household cleaners, please be aware that these products such as laundry detergents and other cleaning supplies may contain phosphates as well. Where the waste water around our lake goes directly into the ground by way of septic systems, it is important not to allow this contaminant into our ground waters as well. Always look for safe phosphate-free products to help protect our precious resource.
