Abstract
The upper Potomac estuary is highly eutrophic. During the summer months, large blooms of nuisance blue-green algae, mainly microcystis, occur in the fresh water portion of the upper estuary. A relationship between high nutrient content and the accelerated eutrophication in the Potomac estuary has been established. The report investigates nutrient sources in the Potomac River Basin.
