GLRPPR Sector Resource: Phosphorus Management Plans

Phosphorus Management Plans

Excess phosphorus can cause algae and aquatic vegetation to grow out of control. This can result in nuisance and algal blooms, which can cause odor problems and make water unfit for drinking or recreational use. To address these problems, the MN Pollution Control Agency developed a Phosphorous Management Plan Guide, consisting of seven action steps.
