    Phosphorus is now commonly used as a red herring blaming nutrient pollution, but the more important nitrogenous nutrient (fertilizer) pollution originates from different sources, now mostly blamed on the runoffs from farms and cities. However, what the public does not know is the best kept national secret, that EPA never implemented the CWA, because it used an essential test (BOD) incorrect and not only ignored 60% of this oxygen exerting waste in sewage, but all the nitrogenous (urine and protein) waste. This, while this waste, like fecal waste, exerts an oxygen demand and also is a fertilizer for algae. By calling this waste now a nutrient and blaming it mostly on farmers, the public has been successfully kept in the dark.
