Abstract
Eutrophication is a widespread global scale pollution problem. Agricultural areas are generally the main contributors to eutrophication, whereas sewage and industrial discharges, which usually receive some treatment prior to discharge, are a secondary source. This is mostly the case of the ultra-oligotrophic Florida Everglades, where natural water sources are often enriched by nutrients from large-scale industrial agricultural stormwater runoff. Remediation of these agricultural waters cannot be...
