Comprehensive watershed studies have been conducted for two lakes located in the Lake Michigan drainage system. Studies were conducted from March through October of 1979. During that interval, large differences in storm-related nutrient loading were measured from urban, wetland, and agricultural sources. Eliminating runoff due to melt of the snow pack, it was found that rain-related discharge from the urban area studied was 0.578 kg total-P and 3.688 kg total-N/ha of watershed. Rain induced runoff from marshes in the same drainage basin transported 0.023 kg total-P and 0.585 kg total N/ha of catchment.
