Many people know that nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen are contained in fertilizers, and when overused can cause water pollution problems that require corrective action. But the impacts of excessive nutrient pollution to coastal communities from wastewater disposal systems and storm water runoff are not understood as well. The Massachusetts Estuaries Project was developed to determine current nutrient loads and assist in the evaluation of future nutrient load scenarios for estuaries located in Southeastern Massachusetts coastal communities.
Outline of efforts to manage impacts of excessive nutrients on Massachusetts water resources.
Massachusetts Ecological Integrity Maps and MassDEP Maps Depicting Habitat of Potential Regional or Statewide Importance
These maps are intended to help prioritize land for conservation based on the assessment of ecological communities. The maps represent a percentage of the landscape with the highest wildlife-habitat value. Activities in these areas that are subject to the Wetlands Protection regulations should conduct a detailed wildlife habitat evaluation.
