We already have a water problem.
Let's not make it worse!
The water in, around and under Long Island and Westchester is being contaminated with sewage, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas leaks and... lawn fertilizers!
Some of the lawn fertilizers sold and used on Long Island and Westchester contain PFAS - a class of toxic “forever” chemicals known to cause serious health problems in humans.
Some fertilizers also contain high levels of water-soluble nitrogen which contaminate our water causing algal blooms and other problems.
This is an easy fix. Ask your lawn and garden retailer or landscaping service for lawn fertilizer with no more than 12% nitrogen and no PFAS.
