This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the March 2020 webinar Estimating Long-term Phosphorus Retention Capacity of Riverine and Coastal Wetlands. In addition to taking audience questions, the team offered some ideas about how their work informed an ambitious water quality initiative in Ohio.
This protocol is intended to enable wetland managers, conservationists, and other practitioners to monitor and estimate a wetland’s long-term Total Phosphorus (TP) retention capacity threshold.
This infographic illustrates the role wetlands can play in removing total phosphorus from the water and ultimately help improve water quality and reduce Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie. The infographic describes how the researchers estimated long-term phosphorus retention capacity for different types of wetlands in Ohio and provides suggestions as to how different audiences might be able to contribute to this effort.
In collaboration with several local partners, Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve conducted a study aimed at understanding different wetlands' long-term capacity for removing nutrients. Together, they produced this story map that demonstrates the importance of wetland services, explains different types of wetlands and management priorities, and summarizes how the team estimated the long-term phosphorus retention capacities of a variety of wetland types based on samples collected from sites in Ohio, including the Lake Erie watershed.
This report contains case studies of low impact development implementation and performance in Northern Ohio as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project.
This paper describes management and structural practices that can be used to manage stormwater runoff from a development site after construction is complete.
This report summarizes the results of interviews with 18 stormwater professionals in Ohio as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project led by Old Woman Creek Reserve.
This report contains feedback and reflections on the collaborative part of the “Implementing Credits and Incentives for Innovative Stormwater Solutions in Ohio.”
This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project in which the Old Woman Creek Reserve and partners provided a local demonstration of low-impact development stormwater treatments in Ohio.
This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that generated precise estimates of nutrient retention by Lake Erie wetlands to inform management and decision making.
