Scientists from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (Dave Nemazie and Sarah Lane) and Aqua Terra Science (Dr. Tom Simpson) were invited to Iowa from April 13-14 to discuss the Chesapeake Bay restoration effort. In this two-day period they met and gave presentations to scientists at Iowa State University, advocacy organizations, state elected officials, Measures of Success Committee of the state Water Resources Coordinating Council, and a public lecture at Drake University Agricultural Law Center.
Below are presentations and additional resources.
Phosphate Laundry Detergent Ban (1988) – reduced phosphorous loads
