I live on the western edge of a watershed that drains seven million acres in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana into Lake Erie. Fertilizer runoff from farms and residential lawns has often resulted in the development of large algae blooms in the lake, harming fish and other aquatic life and endangering the water supply. This piece is an attempt to portray the massive imbalance in the natural environment of this area which occurs as a result of this dynamic.
