Ch003 David B. Baker and R. Peter Richards Water Quality Laboratory, Heidelberg College, Tiffin, OH 44883 For selected Lake Erie Basin tributaries, detailed studies of nutrient and sediment runoff have been underway since 1974 and of pesticide runoff since 1983. The monitoring stations subtend watersheds ranging in size from 11 km to 16,400 km and having similar land use and soils. Examination of the agrochemical concentration and loading patterns at these stations reveals systematic changes related to watershed size (scale).
