Abstract

This project will develop a roadmap workshop to identify and foster research priorities exploring the linkages between receiving body water quality and inputs such as wastewater discharges, nonpoint sources, and internal intrinsic aquatic processes. It will assess the state of knowledge on linkages across the One Water sector, with a particular focus on the gaps between the sources of water quality impairments within a watershed, the impacts of those impairments, and the regulatory environment. This research will enhance the ability of the water quality community to participate in the development and implementation of water quality-based discharge standards for contaminants (principally nutrients).
