USGS Nitrate Gaging Station Funding

March 10, 2022

The James River Water Development District awarded $8,200 to USGS for operation of a real-time, continuous nitrate monitor streamgage in Yankton County. The data collected from this monitor will allow for calculation of accurate nitrate loads, examination of trends in water quality conditions, predictive capabilities for downstream water quality, and calibration of contaminant transport models.
