Lawn Runoff (USGS # BQY15)

Purpose

Two phases of the project have been completed. The first phase objective was to determine differences in concentrations of total phosphorus, dissolved phosphorus, suspended solids, and total solids between 15 fertilized and 15 non-fertilized lawns in the Lake Wingra basin. The second phase objective was to determine differences in concentrations and loads of these constituents in runoff from 5 lawns in this same basin. A final phase is to determine the major variables affecting runoff from urban lawns. Three variables of specific interest are antecedent soil moisture conditions, soil compaction, and slope length.
