    Abstract Intensive land use may cause significant adverse environmental effects
    on groundwater quality in underlying and downgradient aquifers. One of
    the effects of land use currently receiving increasing attention is the
    increase in nitrate levels resulting from agricultural and effluent disposal
    activities.

    Once land use data is available the relationship between land use,
    hydrogeology and groundwater quality can be investigated to identify the
    sustainability of current land use practices.
