I'm not an environmental engineer, marti, so i could be wrong. But what has changed in the last ten years that would make the lake more polluted and greener? Sure, Alex city is part of the problem, but it's runoff should be less damaging to the lake, especially since Russell shut down operations. The major change in the past ten or teen years to my uneducated eyes is the development of he numbers of huge houses and, more important than the size of the house is the way they are built. The old cabins used to be built pretty much on existing topography. The new large houses are only built after scraping and leveling large areas. Builders w down a little straw and say that's good enough to stop silt runoff, but it's not. Then comes the damage caused by huge landscaped lawns and the chemical and fertilizer runoff. And there's a lot of it no matter how careful the landowner is. I blame Alabama power for we ring to the demands if Russell and other developers. Just my opinion.
