Striking a Balance: The Challenges and Opportunities of Watershed Nutrient Management

In this Waterscapes issue, we discuss the evolution of nutrient removal wastewater treatment as a technical practice, as well as policy issues that present compliance challenges, and the need for partnerships to further efforts to successfully manage water quality. The practices, policies and partnerships framework from The Water Research Foundation project titled "Holistic Approach to Improved Nutrient Management" (WRF4974) provides a guide to planning sustainable nutrient management.
