This is the executive summary for the final report of the Watershed Asessment of Detroit River Phosophorus Loads to Lake Erie.
The research findings summarized in the executive summary provide a more complete understanding of the relative contributions of different sources of phosphorus within the St. Clair-Detroit River System watershed, including Lake Huron, point sources, combined sewer overflow events,and runoff from both agricultural and urban lands. This modeling-based project analyzed extensive datasets to develop results that can inform efforts to meet new phosphorus targetes established as part of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. The three-year project was funded by the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation.
