Summary

As part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have partnered to evaluate agricultural conservation practices focused on nutrient management. Monitoring methods allow for rapid assessment of water-quality changes in response to conservation efforts by focusing on subsurface-tile drainage and direct surface runoff from fields. Estimated daily loads presented within this dataset are from one surface-runoff monitoring station (USGS station identification number 0414826544; approximated drainage area of 60.6 hectare) and one tile-runoff monitoring station (USGS station identification [...]
