The study assesses the impact of development on the hydrologic and nutrient budgets of contrasting watershed systems. Nutrient yields from the watersheds of oligotrophic Lake George (New York) and eutrophic Lake Wingra (Wisconsin) were estimated from measured nutrient concentrations and hydrologic flows and from hydrologic budget computations and were compared to reconstructed presettlement yields.
