Projects like this one highlighted in Land and Water can help prevent harmful algae blooms, like the one that affected Toledo’s drinking water supply. The article is about a pilot project in the 2,310-acre watershed that feeds into Grand Lake St. Mary, about 95 percent of which is used for agriculture. Lochgroup was a part of a team that designed a buffer zone with five treatment processes that help clean the stormwater runoff before it entered the lake. Lochgroup designed a seven-acre wetland that absorbs phosphorus and nitrogen by passing the effluent through different zones – including aerobic and anaerobic portions – in the wetland.
