I wouldn't go blaming only the farmers for the lakes - lawns in the city and all the chemicals that homeowners put down throughout the summer months probably should get just as much blame if not more. Farmers are responsible and regulated when applying fertilizers, lots of homeowners on the other hand can put as much fertilizer and weed killers on their lawns as they want and a lot of them put the equivalent of a nuclear bombs worth of chemical down every year. That runoff goes directly into the lakes too.

how do you prevent the runoff from farm lands around our lakes? The so-called farm lakes are icky by July--due to fertilizer runoff and weed killers.
