An extensive review of the literature pertaining to phosphorus in runoff and streams was prepared. Methods were evaluated for determining the potential of eroding noncalcareous and calcareous soil horizons collected from an urban development site for the phosphorus enrichment of streams, based on the phosphorus sorption-desorption characteristics of the soil materials as a function of dissolved inorganic phosphorus concentrations in systems simulating the stream environment. The experimental approach developed provides a basis for predicting the phosphorus enrichment potential not only of soils eroding from urban development sites, but also those carried in runoff from agricultural lands.
