Abstract

Nonpoint source pollution is the leading cause of water quality degradation in the United States, and construction sites are a major source of nonpoint source pollution in developing areas. Using field sampling of runoff from treated and untreated sites in North Royalton, Ohio, as well as computer modeling based on site condition maps, the AA. found that rapid application of surface cover dramatically reduced both the amount of sedimment generated by surface erosion and the concentration and total load of phosphorus in storm-water runoff
