Limestone No Help for Polluted Swedish Forests, Lakes

Swedish biological researchers maintain that their studies show that dumping  large doses of powdered limestone onto the Swedish forests and lakes doesn’t help to improve the water quality or sufficiently bind the poisonous aluminium and other metals in the soil.

Swedish forestry officials had hoped the spreading of 3 tons of lime per hectar would neutralize the acidic pollution and bring life back to the many lacks where the fish has totally disappeared.
