Summary

A field study was conducted in the Prairie Pothole Region of North Dakota to examine potential effects of localized subsurface drainage systems on wetland hydrology. As part of discrete studies utilizing the study sites (wetland catchments) from this study, samples of wetland surface water and subsurface drainage system effluent were collected from 2013–2016 and analyzed for standard water-quality variables (ions, elements, nutrients), agricultural chemicals (herbicides, pesticides), and metals. This data release presents water-quality data associated with these samples. Surface-water samples were collected from five wetlands and effluent was collected from the two drainage-system outlets from wetland Beck 6 and the lone outlet from [...]
