      This well is shallow and is not used for drinking water. Infiltration, evaporation, and transpiration of irrigation water are important factors affecting the concentrations of common constituents in shallow ground water in the Rincon Valley. This conclusion is consistent with conclusions made in other investigations of the San Luis Valley. Management Measures Identified management measures that will achieve load reductions and an identification of the critical areas D. Based on 15 analyses of water from the Vincetown aquifer, Mn is the only constituent that exceeds the drinking water standard.

      Based on 15 analyses of water from the Vincetown aquifer, Mn is the only constituent that exceeds the drinking water standard. Water from wells located in areas of rangeland land use consistently had larger median nutrient concentrations than water from wells in areas of other land uses. Suspended-sediment concentrations in the Rio Grande just downstream from Elephant Butte Dam decreased by nearly three orders of magnitude due to settling in the reservoir. This report only describes very superficially the results of test scenarios, since more complete analysis of scenarios would require more time and effort.

      Dissolved-manganese concentrations ranged from censored concent Additional publication details. Health advisories for the pesticides detected in shallow ground water no maximum contaminant levels have been established for the pesticides detected are 10 to times larger than the concentrations detected. Water-quality data are limited to concentrations of selected nutrient species in surface water and ground water, concentrations of suspended sediment and suspended solids in surface water, and pesticides in surface water, ground water, and biota. We also found that commitment among users in the Middle Rio Grande Valley is to an agricultural lifestyle, not to a community or place. The pesticides or pesticide metabolites diazinon, metolachlor, napropamide, p,p'-DDE, and prometon were detected in one or more samples. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.

Water-quality assessment of the Rio Grande Valley, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas book

The largest concentrations and largest median concentrations of total ammonia plus organic nitrogen and total phosphorus were detected at Rio Puerco near Bernardo, New Mexico. Dissolved solids, chloride, Fe, nitrate, and Mn concentrations exceed drinking water standards in some areas.

In the Creede, Colorado, area and the lower Red River in New Mexico, a combination of natural conditions and human activities appears to be associated with elevated trace-element concentrations; however, data indicate that the concentrations tend to decrease downstream from the source.

Diazinon, at a concentration of 0. Only eight of the trace elements analyzed for had median concentrations greater than their respective minimum reporting levels.

A new, page color report by the USGS summarizes the results of the study, which included 3 years of intensive sampling and data analysis.

The elevated nitrite plus nitrate concentrations in shallow ground water are indicative of leaching of fertilizers from the land surface. Ground-water samples were collected in late April and early May from 30 shallow wells that were installed during the investigation.

This well is shallow and is not used for drinking water. Bureau of Reclamation estimates the upper Rio Grande watershed will collect 30 percent less water by the end of the century, as annual snowpacks shrink and evaporation rates increase. The last minnow may soon be driven from the river by the growing demand for water in the face of drought.

The primary sources of data were the U.

Geological Survey study of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge no detectable organochlorine concentrations were found in plants, but detectable levels of p,p'-DDE were found in coot and carp, with a maximum concentration of 0.

Furthermore, because of its lack of accuracy and completeness, water rights ownership was a poor indicator of water and land usage habits and patterns. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U. Located south of the Arroyo Colorado watershed and north of the Rio Grande watershed.

One or more pesticides were detected in water from 12 of 30 wells sampled. Infiltration, evaporation, and transpiration and Texas book irrigation water are important factors affecting the concentrations of common constituents in shallow ground water in the Rincon Valley.

Central values measured for selected water quality variables are compared for the 12 monitoring sites as well as interpretations of the water quality characteristics observed. This conclusion is consistent with conclusions made in other investigations of the San Luis Valley. Healy, Steven F.Water Resources.

The Lower Rio Grande Valley is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. Our main economic sectors – agriculture, retail service, manufacturing industries, tourism, and commercial fishing – all depend on reliable, good quality water supplies.

Rio Grande (New Mexico) The Rio Grande flows out of the snowcapped Rocky Mountains in Colorado and journeys 1, miles to the Gulf of Mexico. It passes through the foot chasms of the Rio Grande Gorge, a wild and remote area of northern New Mexico.
