Fertilizer Restricitions In Effect For Summer
Sarasota County's fertilizer restrictions are in effect until the end of September. The restriction prohibits the use of fertilizers containing either nitrogen or phosphorus. Environmental officials say feteilizers applied during the summer months can easily wash into storm drains and flow untreated into county bays or streams. The pollution can lead to algae blooms or excessive aquatic plant growth which can deplete oxygen levels and result in fish kills.
