Symbiont Helps Village of Grafton Tackle Phosphorus Reduction Benchmarks

 

As part of a new effort by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources requirements regarding phosphorus levels, Symbiont has been working with the Village of Grafton to reduce phosphorus concentrations in the Milwaukee River. In groundwater, phosphorus can cause algae blooms, reduce biodiversity, and impact recreation in bodies of water.

Jon Butt, P.E., gave an update on this initiative at a recent Board of Public Works meeting. “We’re more than 50% of the way to our target so we are very encouraged by that,” he said.
