Jordan Lake has been an impaired waterway for decades due to nutrient pollution and high levels of pH.
Unfortunately, it has also been neglected by lawmakers who have postponed protective laws. Instead, legislatures have budgeted for costly and ineffective solutions that are experimental and put the hundreds of thousands of people depending on the lake for drinking water at risk. More studies have been funded and a new round of stakeholder talks were convened last year to return to the question of how to reduce pollution in the lake.
