Lake Overload

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Two of the largest lakes — Lake Winnipeg and Lake Erie — are being overloaded with phosphorus. This contributes to massive algal blooms which can suffocate or be toxic to aquatic life. These lakes provide drinking water for millions of people and support huge Indigenous, commercial and recreational fisheries.

In our latest report, Lake Overload, we highlight the problems afflicting healthy water across the land and apply recommendations from leading experts. We provide natural solutions to make this water swimmable, drinkable and fishable.
