  • The crops finished and the farmers gained what the needed, but it started to rain and the fertilizer started to wash away.
  • The water gets flushed down to a lake along with all the fertilizer.
  • Nutrients added to the water started helping algae grow on the top, this made light unreachable to the life forms in the bottom
  • Finally after the light got decreased in the water, plants started to die, so microorganisms started to decay and use up oxygen which made the fishes also die
