The Miramar canals are maintained and cleaned on regular basis to remove pollution. Understanding pollution and how simple acts such as washing cars, over fertilizing grass, oil leaks or littering can help protect our waterways.
The phosphorous found in canals is a result of dumping detergent and fertilizers into water bodies. The algae and aquatic weeds are a result of the presence of nutrients like phosphorous into drains and water bodies that nourish the plants and increases dramatically the vegetation. These actions affect dramatically the overall beauty, functionality, color and smell of the canals. It also suffocates and kills fish and other wildlife.
