Land use practices, sources of enrichment, water quality and engineered systems

Information about land use practices and management related to lake water quality and HABs can be found in this category. This includes agriculture practices that lead to nutrient loading and interventions to reduce the amount of chemicals entering our waterways. Topics include watershed management, stewardship, and best management practices (BMP) for reducing point and non-point source pollution.
