Urban Nutrient Management Conference to be Held Nov. 16
The Middle Potomac Tributary Team and its partners will host a conference on Urban Nutrient Management, Nov. 16, at Montgomery College in Germantown. The all day forum, “From Our Backyards to the Bay,” will focus on what is known about urban fertilizer applications and its impact on the water quality of local tributaries, rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. A special emphasis will be placed on what individual behavior changes are needed to reduce water quality impacts. For more information, contact Claudia Donegan, (410) 260-8768, or email@example.com.
