This type of water pollution, sadly, doesn’t have any easy fix’s it could have been easily avoided had people in the area not used fertilizer there wouldn’t be a problem. There are many alternate fertilizers that don’t contain these nutrients such as Compost tea, organic fertilizer, or even just the old fashioned way! This Completely keeps the problems from happening. Though if you find this hard remember the seven R’s!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Replace, Refuse & reject, Recover, and Rethink. For this type of pollution though, I most recommend Refuse and reject. By refusing and rejecting fertilizers you can stop this type of pollution.
