It was sarcasm. The UARC and PETA claim that it happens. Like most of their claims about Lagoon, it is a complete fabrication and lie.

They mentioned to me that they had a site in China they had worked with to clean up heavy algae in their lake with some plants designed to chew up the nitrogen and phosphorus. They told the site that the plants would flower as long as there were nutrients in the lake and they would know that they were getting close to being clean when the flowers were no longer present.

The planting project was a great success. They put the flowers all along a boardwalk and cleaned up the lake in about 18 months. However, the client called to complain that the plants were no longer pretty without the flowers and were asking how much nitrogen and phosphorus they should be dumping in the lake in order to get the flowers to bloom!

The problem with Lagoon Lake is that it receives too much fertilizer runoff, like all of the rest of the Wasatch Front. They will never be able to adequately resolve the nutrient issues there.

Yes there is way too much fertilizer used in this area. This is a subject I'm well versed in. It makes keeping my pool water balanced a nightmare.
Let's say Lagoon wanted to rebuild the Lake and do a water fountain show in it, so no more fish and gunk. Could Lagoon have it removed from the Farmington Creek Flood Plan or whatever it's called?

You would have to provide a similar volume of active flood storage and a large enough conduit to get the water elsewhere. If it were me, I would create a route to a flood basin inside the parking lot. Since the lagoon isn’t deep and is never fully drained, it shouldn’t be too hard to replace, but it all takes money.

I think that the lake is fine how it is... I just think that they need a drain or something over by tidel wave to catch the trash and garbage that shouldn't be in there... I guess they could make a damn/floating damn that would keep out the garbage around the ride... Floating damn would allow fish is, but a full damn they could do fountains or something around the ride

You do realize the trash comes from guests throwing it in the lake, right?
