Summary

Conclusions:Report summarizes studies on the impacts of agricultural land use on water quality within Alberta. The impacts of agricultural activities on water quality depend strongly on the amount and distribution of land under cultivation, as well as other measures of agricultural intensity such as fertilizer expenses, chemical expenses and animal unit densities. Generally, streams draining watersheds with more agriculture had higher concentrations of nutrients, bacteria, and pesticides.Thresholds/Learnings:
