A Soil Debate: Should Putnam's Government Regulate Fertilizer?
Let's Ban Phosphorous Fertilizer
Across the United States and Canada, local governments are passing laws banning the use of fertilizers that contain phosphorus. Recently, the Westchester County legislature banned the use of such fertilizers. Putnam County, particularly the Town of Putnam Valley, would greatly benefit from a similar ban, and I urge the Putnam County legislature to pass such a law.
