Eutrophication in freshwater ecosystems is an increasing problem in many environments. The central question being addressed is how certain chemical compounds affect eutrophication in bodies of water. There are several misleading and contrasting studies about eutrophication in freshwater biodiversity; a consensus has yet to be reached. The newly adopted perspective in this study revolves around testing the majority of chemical compounds that are found in freshwater ecosystems. The research was conducted in the form of running experiments on two different samples of water with different chemical pollutants. The conclusions drawn in this study add to the body of research on eutrophication as well as introduce ideas regarding the effects of specific chemical pollutants.
