Groundwater Monitoring and Remediation Special Focus Issue

Consider participating in a Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation Special Focus Issue on monitoring and remediation of agricultural nonpoint sources impacting groundwater quality

Agricultural land use represents the largest nonpoint source threat to groundwater quality on a global scale. As a result of decades of fertilizer application and surface spreading of animal manure, chronic increases in nitrate concentrations have been documented within the shallow and deep groundwater environments and with increasing frequency in both private and public supply wells. The occurrence of pathogenic microbes in groundwater supply wells has also been associated with agricultural practices at the land surface.  

Beneficial management practices (BMPs) designed to reduce the risk of groundwater quality impacts across the agricultural landscape are being adopted worldwide, yet little data are available to assess the performance of these BMPs.
