    Ground-water samples were collected from 30 water-table monitoring wells in the northern agricultural land-use (NAL) study area in Nebraska in and 29 water-table monitoring wells in the southern agricultural land-use (SAL) study area in Texas in The two study areas represented different agricultural and hydrogeologic settings. Protect Water Quality. By slowing erosion and runoff, cover crops reduce nonpoint source pollution caused by sediments, nutrients and agricultural chemicals. By taking up excess soil nitrogen, cover crops prevent N leaching to groundwater. Cover crops also provide habitat for wildlife. A rye cover crop scavenged from 25 to percent of.

Get this from a library. Nonpoint-source agricultural chemicals in ground water in Nebraska: preliminary results for six areas of the High Plains aquifer. [Hsiu-Hsiung Chen; A D.

The reconnaissance phase of a study to determine the occurrence of agricultural chemicals from nonpoint sources in groundwater in six areas, which represented the major provinces of the High Plains aquifer in Nebraska is described. Inwater from 82 wells in the 6 study areas was analyzed for nitrate, and water from 57 of the 82 wells was analyzed for triazine herbicides.

Legislation passed in directs NDEQ to issue an annual report to the Legislature concerning the quality of the groundwater in Nebraska. The first of these reports was issued December 1, These reports summarize the water quality monitoring efforts of the Natural Resources Districts, NDEQ, and other state, local, and federal agencies.

Nonpoint Source Water Quality Grants (Section ) Under Section of the federal Clean Water Act, the federal government awards funds to the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality to provide financial assistance for the prevention and abatement of nonpoint source water pollution.

If you work in the water quality management field, you know the challenges of monitoring and controlling pollutants in our water supply. The increasing problem of agricultural nonpoint source pollution requires complex 5/5(1).

Nebraska has some of the best water resources in the nation and the world. Groundwater (located beneath the state’s surface in porous regions known as aquifers) could cover the state with nearly 40 feet of water if it were all pumped to the surface.

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Control (DEC) undertook a study in to determine if nonpoint source (NPS) contamination is occurring in the vicinity of Superior, Nebraska.

If so, designation of a Special Protection Area (SPA) would help the local Natural Resources Districts (NRDS) manage the. Agricultural chemicals—including pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and their degradation products—can enter ground and surface waters in solution, in emulsion, or bound to soil colloids.

Some types of agricultural chemicals are resistant to degradation and can. As a result, ground water has become contaminated by agricultural chemicals in some areas. As part of their ground-water-management plans, each of Nebraska's 23 Natural Resources Districts (NRD's) is required to identify locations and concentrations of ground-water contamination and to monitor levels of selected contaminants.

Pesticide Leaching Methods Ground Water Contamination Likelihood In this method, described in Rao et al. (), ground water vulnerability to pesticide contamination is considered to be dependent on the surface soil horizon and on other parameters combining characteristics of a given pesticide and soil type.In the United States, 16 years (–) of nutrient and irrigation management in an intensively irrigated corn‐growing area of Nebraska's Central Platte Natural Resources District Ground Water Quality Management Area saw a significant (p Cited by: Nitrates in drinking water.

Geological Survey found that nitrates were too high in 64 percent of shallow monitoring wells in agricultural and urban areas.
