Environmental Law and Policy Summit: A View from the Bottom of the Watershed: Managing Hypoxia and Nutrient Pollution

Uptown Campus
Room 110 Weinmann Hall

Excessive inputs of nitrogen and phosphorous runoff into the Mississippi River form eutrophic zones susceptible to harmful algal blooms and culminate in a massive hypoxic "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico. As states, agencies, and private landowners throughout the Mississippi River Basin grapple with the best ways to reduce nutrient loads, Louisiana finds itself at the whim of the rest of the watershed. This panel will examine litigation updates and management strategies for nutrient pollution and hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico and Lower Mississippi River Basin.
