Register for Free Watershed Academy Webinar on "Tools for Developing State Nitrogen and Phosphorus Pollution Reduction Strategies" on Nov. 30, 2011 Join us for a free Watershed Academy Webinar entitled “Nitrogen and Phosphorus Webinar Series: Tools for Developing State Nitrogen and Phosphorus Pollution Reduction Strategies” on Nov. 30, 2011 from 1:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern. This webinar will help states and others understand key tools they can use to combat this serious and growing environmental problem. Over the last 50 years, the amount of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) pollution entering our nation’s waters has escalated dramatically. For example, 30 percent of U.S. streams have high levels of N and P pollution. Also, reported drinking water violations for nitrates have doubled in the last eight years. The webinar will highlight tools that states can use to develop state N and P pollution reduction  strategies. The webinar will demonstrate EPA’s new N and P Pollution Data Access Tool (NPDAT) that is designed to help states develop these N and P reduction strategies (see NPDAT at www.epa.gov/nutrientpollution/npdat). The webinar will also demonstrate the new, interactive SPARROW Decision Support System (DSS), designed by U.S. Geological Survey. The DSS can be used by water managers, researchers, and the general public to map long-term average water-quality conditions and source contributions by stream reach and catchment, as well as track N and P transport to downstream receiving waters, such as reservoirs and estuaries.
