“I could see the bottom, several feet below the surface of the water.”
Pennsylvania — “Today I talked to a retired biology
professor who advises me on how to take care of my pond. He stopped in to look
at the pond a few days ago then called me to ask what had happened. The pond
water had been a dark color. He says it was typical of water that has too many
nutrients -- runoff from our fields. Now the water is cleared up, and he’d like
to restock it with fish!
“This afternoon I rode down to the pond and, sure enough, it’s clear. I could see the bottom several feet below the surface of the water.”
