Presentation Title

Quantifying Nutrient Reductions Achieved by Erosion Remediation Projects on Vermont’s Roads

Project Collaborators

Beverley Wemple (Principal Investigator), Mandar Dewoolkar (Co-Principal Investigator), Scott Hamshaw (Collaborating Mentor)

Abstract

The focus of this research is gully erosion rates and measures to mitigate this pollutant source. Overarching goal is to develop quantitative measures framework that can be used to credit erosion mitigation practices on Vermont's roadways under the Lake Champlain Total Maximum Daily Load. Two major objectives are (1) to quantify rates of sediment and phosphorus production associated with erosion at road drainage points and (2) assess the effectiveness of mitigation efforts in reducing erosion.
