      A mechanistic understanding of the effects of nutrient enrichment in lotic systems has been advanced over the last two decades such that identification of management thresholds for the prevention of eutrophication is now possible. This study describes relationships among primary nutrients (phosphorus and nitrogen), benthic chlorophyll a concentrations, daily dissolved oxygen (DO Cited by: identifies the data sources for the New England Nutrient Database for Rivers and Streams. The structure and framework of the Database are described in Section Section contains the Development Strategy used to “refine” the initial database into a more focused and useable set of waterbodies and parameters.

    and facilitate the development of regional New England nutrient criteria for rivers/streams and to provide analysis of potential approaches or classification schemes that States might consider in development of their nutrient criteria implementation plans.

    EPA has developed a national "reach file," which divides rivers and streams into segments for which water quality data are collected and summarized. The U.S. Geological Survey and EPA systems would apply to wetlands that occur adjacent to rivers and streams, but would be less applicable to wetlands that receive primarily ground water or runoff.

In terms of watershed size the HUC-8s (Table 2) and 4th order and higher streams (Table 3) are most similar to the rivers that were used in our river nutrient research and as such are likely to be an appropriate scale for assessment and application of the criteria.

Although the question of how to set nutrient criteria is framed above in terms of US politics and policies, other countries also are interested in nutrient criteria for streams, particularly de-veloped countries where industrialization, ur-banization, and modern agriculture have result-ed in.

Reach specific criteria are desired for the following reasons: nutrient and chlorophyll-a relationships may be quite different from more free-flowing rivers (because of increased residence time, deeper mixed layer, and related factors) and these pooled reaches are of a higher order than most of the rivers used in development of the river.
