Washington County: Final Overview of Nitrate Levels in Private Wells (2014-2015)

Document
Description
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) determines current nitrate-nitrogen concentrations in private wells, on a township scale, through the Township Testing Program. The MDA has identified townships throughout the state that are vulnerable to groundwater contamination and have significant row crop production. The MDA plans to offer nitrate testing to more than 70,000 private well owners in over 300 townships by 2019. The initial sampling in Washington County started in 2014 and follow-up sampling ended in November 2015.
