why do some nutrients often leach and become pollutants in aquatic ecosystems while others do so much less often 

Apr 19th, 2015

Fertilizers and animal manure, which are both rich in nitrogen and phosphorus, are the primary sources of nutrient pollution from agricultural sources. Excess nutrients can impact water quality when it rains or when water and soil containing nitrogen and phosphorus wash into nearby waters or leach into ground waters. This results in high rate algae bloom interfering with aquatic life.

On the other hand some materials like withered plants contains no chemical substances harmful to the acquatic life and even if large amount if it is released in the water bodies no great negative effect will be noted.
