Map and Data from Effects of Agricultural Land Use on Groundwater Quality Study

Map and Data from Fate of Nitrate in the Alluvial Aquifer Study

Two groundwater studies were conducted in South Platte alluvial aquifer (groundwater adjacent to the stream) in the plains area: 1) a large-scale study of the effects of agricultural land use on groundwater quality, and 2) a small-scale local study nested within the land use study on the fate of nitrate in the alluvial aquifer in the agricultural setting of the South Platte River.
