Atmospheric Nitrogen Deposition Loadings to the Chesapeake Bay: An Initial Analysis of the Cost Effectiveness of Control Options

Published: November 01, 1996

Eutrophication -- low dissolved oxygen -- caused by excess nutrients, is the most significant water quality problem facing the Bay. The Chesapeake Bay Program jurisdictions have committed to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus pollution reaching the Bay by 40 percent from 1985 levels by the year 2000. This report addresses the cost effectiveness of various control options. This is an archived document.
