Estimating sediment, nutrient, and mercury loads from four Western Lake Superior watersheds using continuous in-stream turbidity monitoring

The stream mercury concentrations measured by Minnesota Sea Grant   Researcher George Host are being used by the Western Lake Superior   Sanitary District and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to develop   a regional plan to address water quality issues in streams flowing   into Lake Superior along Minnesota's North Shore. They also are   endeavoring to establish appropriate discharge concentrations for   regional wastewater treatment plants.     (mercury); (Hg); (toxic metals); (toxic metal); (Minnesota); (Lake   Superior); (trout); (fish consumption); (fish consumption advisory);   (fish consumption advisories); (human health); (turbidity);   (chemicals of concern); (chemical of concern)
