Judith River Watershed

Judith River Watershed: Agricultural activities in the Judith River Watershed (JRW) have led to exceptionally high levels of NO3- and a cocktail of organic pesticides in ground water, challenging farming communities and rendering the water an unusable resource. JRW research seeks to understand how intensive agriculture interacts with natural hydrologic dynamics to control NO3- and applied organics in soil, aquifer, riparian, and stream systems.
