The 'I Love Lake' Campaign
Unfortunately, Lake Stevens has struggled with algal blooms for decades. From the old aerator to the current alum treatment, algal blooms threaten the health and safety of the lake. While the alum treatments work, they are costly and only a short-term solution to a bigger problem.
Why so much algae?
Storm water pollution—a combination of rainwater, oil, heavy metals, fertilizer, dirt and animal droppings—washes off city streets into Lake Stevens, fueling problematic algal blooms. We can't solve the algae issue unless we tackle stormwater pollution - and it takes each of us, doing our part every day.
