Pollution caused by nitrogen run-off at Adventure Island--part of the Busch Gardens complex

This was the pond near the entrance to ADVENTURE ISLAND a part of BUSCH GARDENS in Tampa, Florida. Very serious nitrogen run-off here! The color is off in this photo, the scummy part was a very bright fluorescent green color. Photo was taken on 6/18/2010. Apparently the landscapers are using massive amounts of fertilizer on the greenery in the park. Very polluting in a park that is supposed to be honouring nature...
