Phosphorous: a poisonous, combustible nonmetal that exists in two common allotropic forms, white phosphorus, a yellowish waxy solid that ignites spontaneously in air and glows in the dark, and red phosphorus, a less reactive form used in making matches. – dictionary.com
Does that sound like something you want in your water? No, it doesn’t.
When nutrients from agriculture, home septic tanks and other areas accumulate in waterways, algal blooms form. During warmer months, the nutrients cause the algae to rapidly grow to larger and larger blooms, restricting the oxygen in the waterway and producing toxic chemicals that can infect drinking and swimming areas.
According to an article from the EPA, “if water stewards want to stem the growth of harmful algal blooms, they should focus on phosphorus rather than nitrogen.” Thankfully, FocalPoint is excellent at removing phosphorous from storm water.
