Nitrate management on the Hautere Plain

Search in document library

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

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.
