nitrogen phosphorus loads

DWQ will provide nutrient data for each of the ambient monitoring stations paired with a USGS stream-gage site. Monthly water-quality data for the past 5 to 10 years will be combined with the streamflow data (task 2) to compute total nitrogen, total nitrate, and total phosphorus loads at each stream study site.

for nitrogen is 243,310 lb/yr, and the annual TMDL for phosphorus load is 15,570 lb/yr. Allowable loads have been allocated between point and nonpoint sources. The estimated annual nonpoint loads for the TMDL are based on land uses projected to the year 2000. The annual point source loads make up the balance of the allocation.

In excess, nitrogen and phosphorus can have serious negative impacts on water systems and human health. Nitrogen is a common element in all organic materials and in many inorganic industrial chemicals. Nitrogen is found as organic nitrogen (e.g. decaying plants and animals, and food products), urea, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and nitrogen gas.

Unlike phosphorus, mean concentrations of nitrogen were highest in the spring and did not have the same spike in fall. Loads of total and dissolved nitrogen were reduced through a combination of leaf removal and street cleaning in spring and fall during the treatment phase. However, the removal of phosphorus was greater than nitrogen.
