 LIS Hypoxia and Nitrogen Reduction Efforts
  Management actions in response to hypoxia (low dissolved oxygen) in Long Island Sound include the Total Maximum Daily Load with regulatory and non-regulatory nitrogen reduction strategies. To address these and other eutrophication issues in Connecticut’s embayments, DEEP follows the Second Generation Nitrogen Strategy.
