Description

One of the main issues with the Bay of Quinte has always been the amount of excess phosphorus entering the system. Phosphorus is a naturally occurring element essential to all life. However, too much phosphorus can cause problems like excess algae and plant growth. The RAP has reduced the amount of phosphorus entering the Bay from both urban and rural sources.
