[Webcast] Fall Leaf Collection and Street Nutrient Loads
Bill Selbig, USGS
Roger Bannerman, Wisconsin DNR
In this webcast, Bill and Roger will discuss recent results from an ongoing study measuring the reduction of phosphorus and other nutrients in stormwater through municipal leaf collection practices. This research is being used by local and state officials to better understand the contribution of phosphorus to urban stormwater from leaf litter and to evaluate how well various leaf collection practices remove organic detritus from streets. If the results of the research can clarify the benefits of various leaf collection practices, state officials may establish phosphorus reduction credits for qualifying sites to use as a way to achieve phosphorus reduction goals identified in a TMDL.
