N-P FERTILIZATION STIMULATES ANAEROBIC SELENIUM REDUCTION IN AN END-PIT LAKE
Luek, A., D.J. Rowan, and J.B. Rasmussen.
Scientific Reports 7:10502(2017)

Fertilization of an end-pit lake with N and P increased primary production, creating a meromictic, anoxic layer, and enhanced the habitat for locally present anaerobic Se- and sulfur-reducing bacteria. Within two years, Se concentrations fell 10-fold, reaching water-quality guideline values. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-11095-2
