Steps to Identifying High Priority Tributaries  Ranking tributaries by water quality, then by diffuse nitrogen sources can help to determine which watersheds are high priority. High priority watersheds are those responsible for proportionally more nutrient and sediment inputs to receiving waters than other watersheds.

Generic Resources and Threats to the Northern Great Plains Parks  Some of the most common threats to the national parks ecosystems include those to quality of air, quality and quantity of available water, and the parks native species. Prescribed fire is used to prevent uncontrolled forest fires and to reduce the growth of nonnative species.

Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients
