What is one cleanup method for controlling cultural eutrophication? 

A)  using advanced waste treatment 
B)  planting excess plants near sewage discharge sites 
C)  treating plant growth with herbicides 
D)  harvesting excess weeds

Cultural Eutrophication

The process by which a water body becomes overly enriched with minerals and nutrients (mainly from runoff) leading to an explosion in algae growth, which can deplete oxygen levels in water bodies.

Advanced Waste

Waste products that have undergone sophisticated treatment or processing, often to reduce toxicity or enhance disposability.

Sewage Discharge

The release of wastewater from domestic, commercial, or industrial sources into the environment, often requiring treatment to remove contaminants.

  • Explain the reasons behind cultural eutrophication, its consequences, and methods to alleviate it.

Final Answer :
Explanation :
Using advanced waste treatment is the most effective cleanup method for controlling cultural eutrophication. This method involves removing excess nutrients from wastewater before it is discharged into a water body. This reduces the amount of nutrients that promote the growth of algae and other aquatic plants, which can cause eutrophication. Planting excess plants near sewage discharge sites, treating plant growth with herbicides, or harvesting excess weeds are not effective methods for controlling eutrophication.
