Start Date: May 01, 2011
End Date: Apr 30, 2016
Controlled experiments using biological and water quality indicators in mesocosms and constructed wetlands will be used to evaluate the extent of impairment and, conversely, recovery from specific agricultural contaminants that are of national and international concern, i.e. sediments, nutrients, and pesticides. Aquatic plants will be tested for their ability to process simulated agricultural storm runoff.
