Lindenhurst village officials are reminding residents that the use of fertilizers containing phosphorous is banned. High phosphorous levels in water bodies can lead to excessive algae and aquatic plant grown, which can harm aquatic life and impair recreational use, according to the village. The village ban went into effect on Jan. 1, 2009. The regulations prohibit these of fertilizers containing phosphorous by individual homeowners or commercial applicators applying fertilizer to any lawn or turf area and any impervious surface, drainage way, wetland or buffer zone.
