Urbanized nutrient enrichment of the Klina River in Kosovo: Impact on surface water and drinking water quality in a developing country
by Hefley, Roger Daniel, M.S., Colorado State University, 2012, 101; 1511004
Abstract (Summary)

Urban development is a present and future challenge for water managers, with one of those challenges being nutrient enrichment. While the ecological and health impacts of nutrient enrichment are well documented and understood, the challenge still remains in helping developing countries initiate a sustainable water quality program that will address nutrient enrichment and other water quality problems. The Klina River in Kosovo has shown evidence of eutrophication in multiple locations. The goal of this research was to quantify the nutrient concentrations and loads of NH4, NO3, and PO4; and determine what level influence urban development was having on the Klina River's water quality.
