      Join us for a free EPA Watershed Academy webcast titled “Nitrogen

and Phosphorus Pollution Series: State and Local Policies to Restrict

the Use of Lawn Fertilizers"on Wed., Sept. 21, 2011 at 1pm - 3pm

Eastern.  Fertilizers, leaves, grass clippings, animal waste, and eroded

soil are all sources of phosphorus and nitrogen.  When they are swept or

washed into the street or nearest storm drain, they end up in your local

lake or river where they can cause algal blooms and other water quality

problems.  This webcast will highlight legislation passed by Minnesota,

Michigan and the Chesapeake Bay states to restrict the use of lawn

fertilizers and will share key lessons learned. This webcast is one in a

series on the important issue of nutrient pollution.  Please register

for this Webcast at www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts.


Participants are encouraged to download webcast presentations prior to

the webcast at the same url.  Webcast participants are also eligible to

receive a certificate for their attendance.
