As a Nation, we’ve spent lots of money over the years trying to clean up our rivers and lakes. Has it been worth it? How do we know if we’ve under- or over-spent? This seminar presentation explores this question empirically in a mid-west (Minnesota) agricultural watershed, using a newly developed analytic tool (InVEST, from the Natural Capital Project by the University of Minnesota and others) that permits us to think about the extent to which water quality investments are, or are not, rationally supported by Science.
