Monitoring and analyzing nutrients in water ways

Stream and river water quality is important for aquatic life, ecosystem health, and human health. Understanding and managing potential impacts from nutrients entering streams and rivers helps decision-makers and growers alike to implement effective, strategic agricultural practices. Adoption of Best Management Principles and Practices (BMP) has a vital role in improving water quality, food security, and crop yield by reducing nutrient loss.

Our Nutrient Monitoring and Data Analysis Work

There are many land management practices that may accomplish such goals, however, characterizing and predicting the impact of these management options is not obvious. Region-specific weather, soils, fertilizer timing, fertilizer type, and field drainage all factor together to make it difficult to understand the best local options. At Waterborne, we support local efforts to develop and assess various land management practices dealing with nutrient loss, yield optimization, and improved water quality.

We provide the following services:

  • Hydrologic and water quality field study design and monitoring, including site selection
  • Statistical analysis of field data considering environmental and land management conditions
  • GIS analysis, placing the results in context with similar locations
  • Numerical simulations of field- and watershed-scale agriculture

We are happy to work with you to answer any nutrient-related questions.
