    Much of the scientific work related to subsurface nitrate and pesticide leaching has focused on two areas: documenting the extent of contamination in groundwater; and investigating the fate of these chemicals in the soil root zone (including the potential for groundwater leaching) as it relates to particular agricultural crops and management by: Abstract Temporal monitoring of the pesticide 1,2-dibromochloropropane (DBCP) and nitrate and indicators of mean groundwater age were used to evaluate the transport and fate of agricultural chemicals in groundwater and to predict the long-term effects in the regional aquifer system in the eastern San Joaquin Valley, California.

    The proposed approach was employed on water samples from nitrate‐impaired domestic wells of the San Joaquin Valley, sampled as part of our previous research [Lockhart et al., ]. This is the first joint application of nitrogen and oxygen isotopes of nitrate, boron isotopes, and iodine to identify sources of groundwater by: 5.   Nitrate Contamination in the San Joaquin Valley Pacific Institute A Sinking Feeling In San Joaquin Valley How to Survive Alone in the Wilderness for 1 week --Eastern .

    Nitrate and pesticides in ground water in the eastern San Joaquin Valley, California: occurrence and trends. The occurrence of nitrate and pesticides in ground water in California's eastern San Joaquin Valley may be greatly influenced by the long history of intensive farming and irrigation and the generally permeable sediments. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): The sustainability of water resources is key to continued prosperity in the San Joaquin Valley and California. The vadose zone is an often-ignored layer of wet but unsaturated sedi-ments between the land surface and the water table. It plays an important role in groundwater recharge and in .

Trends in concentrations of nitrate, the nematocide 1,2‐dibromo‐3‐chloropropane, and the herbicide simazine during the last two decades are generally consistent with known nitrogen fertilizer and pesticide use and with the position of the. In this study, spatial and temporal trends in concentrations of nitrate and pesticides in ground water in the eastern San Joaquin Valley, California, were evaluated to determine the long-term effects of agricultural and urban development on regional ground-water by: concentrations of nitrate in ground water in the eastern San Joaquin Valley are expected to persist over the long term, owing to continued anthropogenic nitrogen inputs and generally oxic geochemical condi-tions.

This study assesses nitrate and pesticide occurrence in ground water beneath three agricultural land-use settings in the eastern San Joaquin Valley, Nitrate and pesticides in ground water of the eastern San Joaquin Valley.

Water samples were collected from 60 domestic wells in vineyard, almond, and a crop grouping of corn, alfalfa, and vegetable land-use by: the eastern San Joaquin Valley. For decades, the leaching of agricul-tural chemicals (fertilizer, especially nitrate, and pesticides) has been a concern of agronomists, soil scientists and hydrologists.

Federal legislation first recognized the potential impacts to water resources in the early s, when the Clean Water Act, the Safe. Also, the amount of nitrate in an individual well is often the result of several nitrate sources. We quantified the amount of nitrate from each of four sources (manure, fertilizer, septic, and natural) in 56 private wells in the San Joaquin Valley (Ransom et al., ).

Results of this “fingerprinting” study indicate that multiple nearby sources have likely contributed to an individual well’s nitrate concentration.

The Eastern San Joaquin Groundwater Authority members have worked together for decades on water resources planning and groundwater management projects. As with past projects, the members will implement a collaborative approach to encourage stakeholder and public participation in the development of its plan.

Dept. of the Interior, U.S. Geological Survey ; Denver, CO: Information Services [distributor], (OCoLC) Material Type.Nitrate contamination of groundwater systems used for human water supplies is a major environmental problem in many parts of the world. Fertilizers containing a variety of reduced nitrogen compounds are commonly added to soils to increase agricultural yields.

But the amount of nitrogen added during fertilization typically exceeds the amount of nitrogen taken up by crops.Groundwater nitrate contamination in the Central Valley (CV) aquifer of California is a ubiquitous groundwater problem found in various parts of the valley.

Heavy irrigation and application of fertilizer over the last several decades have caused groundwater nitrate contamination in several domestic, public and monitoring wells in the CV above EPA’s Maximum Contamination level of Cited by: 7.
