Causes of Eutrophication Eutrophication has been linked to increased nutrient loading Increased urbanization and development Increased impervious surface cover (ISC) More effectively routes nutrients to waterways Decreases soil and vegetation nutrient sinks Attributes of development add to the problem Increased fertilizer use Erosion from construction

Pollution from industry Research Goals Gain insight on the impacts Test SNAP (Stormwater of land use and stormwater Nitrogen and Phosphorous)

control measures on v.4.0. nutrient loading. Hypotheses 2

H1 Nutrients will be lower in urban streams with SCMs integrated into their watersheds than those without SCMs for similar levels of impervious surface cover, canopy cover, road density, and parcel density. H2 When looking at geologically similar urban watersheds, there is a: Positive correlation between metrics of urban development

and nutrient loading Negative correlation between metrics of vegetation density and nutrient loading Methods 3 Site Selection Four stream sites chosen for urban gradient and use of SCMs

GIS Data Collection Methods ArcMAP 10.5 Watersheds delineated for all four sites Important variables calculated for each watershed: Watershed Areas

ISC paved roads, parking lots, driveways, rooftops, swimming pools Parcel Density and Average Area Canopy Cover Area - 30m resolution NLCD, Orthographic Imagery classification SNAP v.4.0 Methods Important Required Information includes land use metrics: Area: watershed, roof,

paved road, paved parking lot, paved driveway Custom land use of pervious (airport) and impervious (swimming pools) surfaces SNAP v.4.0 Methods SCM Only those designed to affect nitrogen, phosphorus or peak flow events

were chosen Tanbark and MLK (X # SCMs chosen from each) Catchment areas for and actual areas of each BMP were calculated in ArcMAP 10.5 Default settings for SCMs lacking information Results 4 Peak Flows

Nutrient Concentration vs. Impervious Surface Cover Implications 5 Surface Cover Tanyard

Highest %ISC Highest nitrate concentration Burlage Lowest %ISC Lowest nitrate concentration Neither had any BMPs Potential Errors/Pitfalls

Limited sampling timeframe Few rainfall/storm events contributed to low flow rates Missing a hydrograph for Tanbark site Load calculations with generally low flow rates yielded a few anomalous values on one day with significantly higher flow rate Inability to extrapolate for annual range Low variety of sampling sites/ISC SNAP model associated with inaccuracies with less urban development

Further testing is needed SNAP: Stormwater Nitrogen and Phosphorus Expected error in SCM watershed calculations DEMs do not account for anthropogenic manipulation of landscape Lack of specifics in Tanbark BMPs Numbers for sites with less ISC significantly less reliable Acknowledgements
