AGS / Geohazards / Other Geohazards / Groundwater Contamination

Groundwater contamination is a significant concern in portions of Arkansas. Many research projects, past and present, have focused on the types of water contamination problems and ways of reducing levels of contamination. In many cases, agricultural contamination of groundwater is of great concern, especially in northeast Arkansas due to the large regions devoted to agriculture and the use of fertilizers. Scientists are also concerned with surface water contamination and it effect on local watersheds. Many of the current research projects are a collaborative effort between universities and the USGS.
