Linking groundwater quality to soil properties, landscape characteristics, and farm practice a spatial analysis of the "groundwater characterization in R.M. of Leroy" dataset
The objectives of this study are to determine the source and extent of nitrogen and phosphorus contamination in the Rural Municipality of Leroy, and the most likely modes of contaminant transport, using only existing data. The analysis was conducted without the benefit of further data collection. Data types include information about well properties, land use, farm management practices and selected water quality parameters, obtained from the original Leroy well water study ("Groundwater Characterization in RM of Leroy", March 2001.) Soils databases, Canadian census information, topographic data and hydrographic data were also drawn upon to analyze water quality data in a GIS environment.
