Phosphorus cycle - Wikipedia

When these two elements exceed the capacity of the water body, eutrophication occurs. Phosphorus that enters lakes will accumulate in the sediments and the biosphere, it also can be recycled from the sediments and the water system. Drainage water from agricultural land also carries phosphorus and nitrogen.

Press Release | Chesapeake Bay Program

Issues. Excess nutrients and sediment are among the leading causes of the Chesapeake Bay's poor health. Nitrogen and phosphorus can fuel the growth of algae blooms that lead to low-oxygen "dead zones" in deep waters and short-duration "mortality moments" in shallow waters. Sediment can block sunlight from reaching underwater grasses and suffocate shellfish.
