Government letter on need for action to deal with dead zones in bodies of water

Dear Senator,
Dead zones in bodies of water around the world are multiplying and in some cases exponentialy this year, and must be addressed immediately.  Algae is a driving force of dead zones attacking the oxygen in the water, and consequently destroying the ecosystem that has thrived for thousands of years.  This is in part caused by the run off of sulfate found in fertilizers that Algae thrives in.  Sulfate runs off into bodies of water like the Missippi river and ends up in the Gulf of Mexico.  Simple treatment with microbes a naturally occurring organism that attacks algae. I believe can greatly reduce the dead zones and prevent the occurrence of dead zones in an environmentally friendly way.  Combined with carbon farming techniques used in Iowa can significantly reduce known negative consequences. I found a website that sells products to help with the cleaning bodies of water. http://pondsolutions.com/aquariumpharmaceuticals.htm#BioClean
