Abstract

We researched the effects of eutrophication on aquatic ecosystems, and the possible methods by which members of the general public can reduce impact. The project used various data sources to learn about the process of eutrophication as well as to discover methods that could be distributed to the general public as methods to reduce eutrophication. Based on the eighty-five responses received approximately 67% of people knew about eutrophication, 47% practice good habits around eutrophication, and 50% of the people who do not practice good habits were willing to change.
