As you may know, my background is on golf course work and research.

I received this article from the United States Golf Association’s  funded research program.

It’s hard data about the capacity of wetlands to “cleanup” nutrient rich runoff from (in this case) golf courses, but it well applies to any land where fertilizers are applied to.

This article is written for non scientific readers, so please disregard the dry language when it bogs down to data and try to get the bigger picture.
