Stronger storms hamper ability of streams and rivers to clean up pollution


Researchers use high-technology sensors to understand water quality 

Freshwater streams and rivers naturally clean up some forms of pollution originating from urban and agricultural areas, but increased storm intensity reduces this ability, which underscores the need to improve the management of nonpoint sources of pollution and storm water management, according to new research published in Water Resources Research, a journal of the American Geophysical Union....more
