Nutrient Pollution Outreach and Education Materials
- Managing Nitrogen Lowers Costs and Maintains Yields by Doug Martin (courtesy of FarmWeek) (pdf)
- Missouri's endangered water resources need everyone's help - Professor Robert Pavlowsky (pdf)

The goal of this site is to assist state and local agencies, watershed groups, nongovernmental organizations and others in developing effective outreach materials related to nutrient pollution. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) wants to enlist the help of local groups in sharing information with the media and the public about the growing threats to our nation’s water resources from nutrient pollution and ways that the public can help make a difference. Making this important environmental issue relevant to one’s community and explaining how it affects local water resources (like your local lake, river, reservoir, etc.) will be critical for success.
