Feature Pollutant – Nitron
Source: Fertilizer, Waste Water
Nitron, short for Nitrogen, is sneaky because it is an odourless, colourless and tasteless gas. Commonly used as an ingredient in soaps and fertilisers, Nitron is very harmful when it flows into waterways because it causes plants and algae to grow very fast, which clogs rivers and creeks and blocks light to deeper waters.
Here’s what you can do: Wash the car on the lawn to prevent nitrogen draining to the creek
