Norman Fertilizer Ordinance
The City of Norman has recently identified Lake Thunderbird as having impaired water quality due to increased algae production caused by excess phosphorus in the lake. Phosphorus is found in a lot of traditional fertilizers and can be carried by storm runoff into our water bodies that we use as drinking water. To help protect our local waterways, the City of Norman has adopted an ordinance regulating the use of manufactured fertilizers.
Lawn Care companies now have to register with the City of Norman if they use phosphorus fertilizers and the city will limit the use of phosphorus fertilizers.
