    Disproportionality as a Framework to Target Pollution Reduction from Urban Landscapes

    Get PDF
    New federal water quality regulations regarding impaired waters and urban stormwater alongside a growing need to reverse eutrophication of urban lakes are creating demand to decrease nutrient export from urban landscapes, particularly lawns. We propose that Nowak’s disproportionality framework could be used to target specific households likely to generate disproportionate levels of nutrient export. The biophysical dimension would be based on landscape vulnerability (slope; soil type; proximity to lakes); the social dimension would target “inappropriate” lawn management behaviors leading to high nutrient export on these vulnerable landscapes. Understanding of lawn nutrient cycling (biophysical dimension) and homeowner beliefs and attitudes (social dimension) would be used to develop targeted, specific messages for homeowners with inappropriate management practices. A lawn management program developed with this disproportionality framework would probably be very effective, highly economical and fair, targeting only homeowners who are creating a disproportionate impact

    Ah, once how fair, both wood and lawn,But now so dull the world has grown!\u27Tis gone, the joyous summer time, And sorry winter sends its rime\u27Tis gone, the joyous summer timeAnd sorry winter sends its rime With verdant shelter every where we knew not sadness, had no care,The sun shone clear, we sang awayIn mirth and joy the live-long day,In mirth and joy the livelong dayNow we poor birds, our sorrow\u27s come;The leaves are gone, we have no home;To seek one \u27neath a warmer sky, We far away from here must fly,We far away from here must fly,To seek a home \u27neath warmer sky

    Fertilizer and Stormwater Runoff Outreach Program in Newcastle, NH

    Get PDF
    The New Hampshire Coastal Protection Partnership (NH Coast) implemented a year long pilot public education and outreach program in the Town of New Castle aimed at reducing nitrogen pollution from lawn fertilizers and promoting rain gardens as a solution to storm water runoff and nonpoint source pollution. A total of 77 landowners representing 138 acres of land pledged to either not use lawn fertilizers or use only low phosphorus, slow release nitrogen brands. The program also resulted in the installation of New Castle’s first demonstration rain garden
