Eutrophication is excessive richness of nutrients in a lake or other body of water, frequently due to run-off from the land, which causes a dense growth of plant life (generally phosphorus in the case of inland waters and nitrogen in the case of marine waters), and remains the most significant environmental issue for surface waters. In the case of rivers, for example, the two most important suspected causes of pollution are agriculture and municipal sources, accounting for 53% and 34% of cases, respectively.
