Non-point source water pollutants resulting from agricultural areas have been implicated as a source of water quality degradation in south Florida. The nutrients loading from agricultural and urban areas has increased nutrient concentrations, particularly phosphorus at the Everglades National Park. It is reported that nutrient-enriched waters affect vegetation type and patterns. A computer model, Everglades- Agro-Hydrology Model (EAHM) has been developed to evaluate the impact of agricultural practices on the water quality of the region. The objective of this study is to present the nutrients and pesticides components of the EAHM.
