IDAWRA Brownbag: Wed. March 26, 2014; 11:30 - 1:00 pm " Nutrient Trends in Streams and Rivers of the United States, 1993ľ2003"
Speaker: Lori A. Sprague, Research Hydrologist, U.S. Geological Survey
As we establish future funding priorities for water-quality protection and restoration efforts, it is critical to know how past water-quality conditions in streams and rivers have changed over time and to understand why changes have occurred. Have management actions been effective or are other influences causing the changes? For example, the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) program of the US Geological Survey has determinedáthat nitrate loading from the Mississippi River Basin to the Gulf of Mexico increased 14 percent from 1980 to 2010 despite extensive efforts to improve and expand the use of urban and agricultural management practices during the period. Can we say why? NAWQA has also determined that pesticide concentrations have changed as chemical use changes, as regulations controlling use are issued, and as new or improved products become available.
