Combined effects of best management practices on water quality in oxbow lakes from agricultural watersheds

  title={Combined effects of best management practices on water quality in oxbow lakes from agricultural watersheds},
  author={Robert F. Cullum and Scott S. Knight and Charles M. Cooper and Sean E. Smith},
Water quality conditions in three oxbow lakes were examined before and after best management practices (BMPs) implementation within the Mississippi Delta. Experimental design called for the development of structural and cultural treatments to reduce sediment and associated pollutants entering watershed oxbow lakes. Three watersheds were selected and developed with different levels of BMPs. Changes in lake water quality were used as measures of management success. Analyses of water quality data… CONTINUE READING
