Abstract/Description  
Anthropogenic development in estuarine watersheds accelerates nutrient loading and eutrophication.  An understanding of nutrient budgets is essential to minimize water quality deterioration, protecting both current use and future development.  Nutrient concentrations were measured in two adjacent southern Maine estuaries in 1994-95.  The Little River estuary and watershed are relatively undeveloped.  The Webhannet River estuary was a modified during harbor construction, and its watershed extensively adjacent to its estuary.  Comparison of their nutrient budgets helps quantify the impact of development.
