Water Stocks Directory Updated for August; Investors Follow Sector as Toledo Faces Water Scare and Record Droughts Make Water a Valuable Commodity

Algae Bloom Toxin Caused by Farm Runoff and Sewage

NEW YORK and POINT ROBERTS, Washington, August 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

 

Investorideas.com (http://www.investorideas.com), a global news source covering leading sectors announces it has updated its water stocks directory of globally publicly traded water companies for August.  Investors following the sector paid attention as the city of Toledo and surrounding area called a State of Emergency as result of a toxin from an algae bloom.

Residents were told on Saturday to not drink their tap water or use it to brush their teeth and not to boil it, as it may increase the concentration of toxin.

The overgrowth of algae was caused by farm runoff including fertilizers and sludge from sewage treatment plants and some say warmer water due to climate change.

Apparently the city has known of the problem for over a year.

With record drought, aging infrastructure and water pollution, water is becoming an increasingly valuable commodity.
