Nutrients (Fertilizer and Yard Waste)

  • Nutrients are compounds that stimulate plant growth, like nitrogen and phosphorus.  They are beneficial and necessary, but in high concentrations can become an environmental threat.
  • Nutrients cause algae blooms.  When the algae dies off, it sinks and decomposes in a process that removes oxygen, killing fish and plant life (eutrophication).
