  • Bringing life back to dead zones

    Dead zones — those regions that can be found in the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, and even the Gulf of Mexico — are a serious problem for U.S. waterways. These hypoxic zones, the result of excess nitrogen and phosphorus run off, can lead to algae blooms that can stifle aquatic life. Regulators are doing their part to reduce these dead zones by mandating the decrease of nutrient runoff ...
