State and Local Policies to Restrict the Use of Lawn Fertilizers

Register for an EPA Watershed Academy Webcast on "State and Local Policies to Restrict the Use of Lawn Fertilizers" on Sept. 21, 2011 --1-3pm Eastern

To register for this Webcast, please visit www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts

Join us for a free EPA Watershed Academy webcast titled “Nitrogen and Phosphorus Pollution Series: State and Local Policies to Restrict the Use of Lawn Fertilizers" on Wed., Sept. 21, 2011 at 1pm - 3pm Eastern. Fertilizers, leaves, grass clippings, animal waste, and eroded soil are all sources of phosphorus and nitrogen. When they are swept or washed into the street or nearest storm drain, they end up in your local lake or river where they can cause algal blooms and other water quality problems. This webcast will highlight legislation passed by Minnesota, Michigan and the Chesapeake Bay states to restrict the use of lawn fertilizers and will share key lessons learned. This webcast is one in a series on the important issue of nutrient pollution. Please register for this Webcast at www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts.

Participants are encouraged to download webcast presentations prior to the webcast at the same url.  Webcast participants are also eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.
