Reducing Phosphorous Loading in Lake Erie by Identifying Land Areas Suitable for Wetland Construction

Harmful algal bloom frequency in Lake Erie has increased over the past decade because of excess phosphorus loading. The primary source of phosphorus comes from runoff from agricultural, residential, and urban areas. One effective method to reduce phosphorus is constructed wetlands. The goal of this project is to identify areas in Erie County that would be suitable for wetland construction in order to reduce the amount of phosphorous loading from Erie County by 40 percent.
