Abstract Cultural eutrophication of the Great Lakes resulted in actions to reduce phosphorus loading beginning in the 1970′s. Despite these measures, a resurgence of harmful algae blooms began in the 1990s. Non-point sources and changing agricultural practices are frequently cited as contributing to this resurgence. We examined changes in total phosphorus concentrations ([TP]) and several other water quality parameters from April through November from 1979 to 2011 using 56 streams throughout… CONTINUE READING
