In a follow-up to an earlier story we ran, yesterday the FNP had an update on the effectiveness of the Bio-balls in controlling algae growth in Carroll Creek.
According to the article:
The use of bio-balls has dramatically decreased the amount of algae appearing in the creek, said Roelkey Myers, director of parks and recreation.
Eight of the softball-sized, plastic orbs have been placed in the creek between Bentz and East streets. The balls slowly release enzymes that compete for the same nutrient the algae needs to grow.
Overall, Myers said, he has seen a 90 percent reduction in the prevalence of algae blooms in the creek.
I think the Promenade is looking and smelling a lot better this year. What do you think?
