This document describes the methodology used and presents the conclusions and recommendations for remedial measures resulting from the Maumee River Basin studies. The generation of sediment and nutrients from intensively cultivated cropland under prevailing management practices was measured and these losses were compared with the yield of the same materials at the downstream discharge point. The study investigated the differences in pollutant generation on several of the major soils and determined the effects of season and soil characteristics on sediment and nutrient generation. Pollutant transport by tile drainage was studied, levels of heavy metals in soil, sediment and surface and ground water were surveyed, and pesticides in sediment were scanned.
