Call to Action - Speak up for our lakes, and come out for this Wednesday's Council vote

Blog posts reflect the views of their authors.

It is early in the summer but already there has been a blue-green algae bloom on Long Lake and a suspected bloom on McFarlane Lake.
 
This Wednesday, Council will vote on whether or not to move forward on a bylaw that will restrict the use of lawn fertilizers with phosphorus.
 

Show your support!
-  Call you Councillor and tell them you support this action to protect our lakes (call 3-1-1, or find your Councillor's number at  http://www.greatersudbury.ca/cms/index.cfm?app=div_council&lang=en)
-  Come out this Wednesday, 2pm in Council Chambers (Tom Davies) to show your support during the staff presentation and Council vote.
 
Phosphorus is a limiting nutrient for blue-green algae, and restricting phosphorus runoff to our lakes is one way to keep our lakes healthy to protect our drinking water sources, and the free enjoyment of our lakes that is part of our life here in Sudbury.
This bylaw is a good first step, and will help build the momentum to be a true city of lakes.
 

Your voice and your presence matters.
