Investigation into Contributions of Nitrate-Nitrogen to Plum Creek, Geronimo Creek and the Underlying Leona Aquifer

Project Goals/Objectives: This project will analyze groundwater from the Leona Aquifer and surface water from Plum Creek and Geronimo Creek for nitrate-nitrogen and its isotopes of nitrgoen and oxygen to determine possible sources of nitrate-nitrogen, i.e.human, animal or fertillzer. Through this project there will be an increase in understanding of the interaction between surface water and underlying groundwater and evaluate strategies and practices for reducing nitrate levels in the surface water and groundwater.
