Beneficial Bacterial Lake Augmentation Announced
Safe and Natural Approach for Harmful Algal Blooms and Nutrient Issues

To prepare for time spent outdoors this coming summer, people who live on bodies of water should be ready to treat their water safely and naturally. A-1 Organic Lawns of southeast Michigan now offers a different way to treat lakes for harmful algal blooms (HABs) and nutrient problems without using harmful products that further harm the lake ecosystem and human health. This different way is augmentation with bacteria that benefit bodies of water by consuming nutrients that normally “feed” algal blooms.
“A-1 applies and distributes these materials.
We have seen better results in the water working with natural products safe for the environment,” owner Jeff Copeland says. “A-1 Organic Lawns only uses safe, organic products. Our services do not contribute to the HAB problem. Treating the lakes with the chemical programs speeds up eutrophication and the loss of the aquatic environment. My background is many decades of working with natural products, green energy and helping people to learn the dangers of chemicals to people and the environment. By working with some of the leaders in this field, my goal is to help stop the killing of the lakes by being proactive, not reactive."
