What Is Nutrient Pollution?
Nutrient pollution is caused by the overabundance of phosphorus and nitrogen in the aquatic environment.
Excessive nitrogen and phosphorus in water can cause health problems in people, fish and animals, and damage our
lakes, rivers, reservoirs, streams and wetlands. Excessive phosphorus and nitrogen may also result in increased
costs to treat water for human consumption from surface water supplies.
