A study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey for the Maine Department of Tran
A study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey for the Maine Department of Transportation identifies runoff and siltation from roads as a significant source of phosphorous. The state's new stormwater rules are designed to protect some of the 300 lakes in danger of eutrophication from excessive phosphorous. MDOT will proceed with measures to contain phosphorous, but is unlikely to cut back on its use of sand during winter maintenance, which has been shown to increase phosphorous. Details.
