A "paper study" was conducted to determine the consequences of nutrient enrichment in an estuary. First, a classification scheme was developed to assign- a "Level of Nutrient Enrichment" to a water body based on concentrations of Total Phosphorus and Total Nitrogen. The impacts of nutrient enrichment on the various uses of estuaries there were described and assessed. Finally, "safe" nutrient levels for Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries were recommended.
