Relationship between Land Use and Nitrate Concentrations In Washington State Department of Ecology Monitored Watersheds: Technical Memorandum (Number of pages: 157) (Publication Size: 5311KB)
|This study provides a method to estimate the level of nitrate export to surface and groundwater associated with a variety of sources including precipitation, animal wastes (rangeland, dairy, and poultry-derived), municipal and on-site wastewater, urban runoff, and agriculturally-applied fertilizers, among others. Ultimately, the analysis method provides a means to assess risk based on the type and intensity of a variety of land-use activities to adversely impact surface and ground water throughout Washington State.
