Urban landscape nutrient runoff has become a significant concern in environmental protection. A lack of quantifiable data coupled with difficult modeling has prevented optimal management from this pollutant source. The objective of my research is to link landscape management practices to nutrient runoff to understand the impact homeowner activities have on water quality. Quantification of nutrient runoff and an understanding of the mechanisms responsible are necessary for improvement of management plans and policies.
