Impact Targets versus Discharge Standards in Agricultural Pollution Management

Abstract

When attempting to protect fish in streams, sediment or erosion targets are inefficient. Use of a habitat suitability target reveals lower cost abatement measures because it accounts for pesticides as well as soil particles. In Lake Michigan case studies, the lower cost measures involve more crop diversity, less use of no-till, and changes on more acres than the solutions based on sediment discharges or erosion rates.
