Last week, Clean Lakes Alliance Director, James Tye and Program Director, Paul Dearlove, presented in front of the The Waunakee Rotary to advocate for lake clean up.
Tye said the lakes are sick. “They don’t meet the standards for fishing, swimming or public health. Each pound of phosphorus that enters the lakes can create 500 pounds of algae,” Tye says.
The good news is the community is willing to invest to improve local lakes.
