"If you value recreating and you value the water resources, recognize our relationship with it and do things to improve it," said Lenore Tedesco, associate professor of geology and director of the Center for Earth and Environmental Science at Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis.
Scientists say there are high levels of toxic blue-green algae alive, well, and growing in Geist Reservoir. They say nutrients like phosphorous and nitrogen in certain lawn fertilizers have contributed to the algae problem.
"We're seeing levels right now that we saw last year by late July and it's only May," said Tedesco. Scientists like Tedesco say the reason why can be found on peoples' lawns and in their lawn fertilizer. "I think we've got a pretty good smoking gun here to say that this is certainly a contributor," she said.
