Take care of A.L. and its waters

I have noticed there is garbage lying around everywhere. It’s just not something that should be happening.

People need to learn to recycle a lot more. Albert Lea should not be turning into a giant garbage can. Use Fountain Lake as an example. No one is able to swim in it because it’s so dirty. People seem so careless about it.

There should be more recycling bins around town and more garbage cans so then it doesn’t get worse. Our lake should not have to suffer and fish shouldn’t have to suffer through all of this. We shouldn’t have to worry about how much longer it will be before we can’t use the lake at all.

Fishing, boating, swimming, tubing, etc., are really fun. That’s why I say we should get this issue to improve. People need to care more and stop making the lake worse than it actually is.
