Download: EPA-funded Baylor study finds phophorus linked to declines in stream water qualitySept. 1, 2009
An EPA-funded study led by Dr. Ryan S. King of Baylor University found that concentrations of phosphorus above 20 parts per billion (ppb) are linked to declines in water quality and aquatic plant and animal life in Texas streams. The study is the first to utilize the new Baylor Experimental Aquatic Research (BEAR) stream facility, which helped demonstrate that phosphorus was indeed causing many of the changes observed in wadeable streams in central Texas.
