Historical information on phosphorus loadings to the environment and the effect on water quality are summarized in this report. The information was produced as part of the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program. Phosphorus is a water-quality constituent of conern because it is often the limiting nutrient responsible for accelerated eutrophication in water bodies.
