Description

Agricultural management practices have increasingly come under general scrutiny as potential sources of water supply contamination. The 1987 Iowa Groundwater Protection Act set a goal of determining these potential contamination sources and to eliminate contamination and restore water quality to the greatest extent practical. One clearly documented path of Iowa groundwater contamination is through farmstead wells. Farmstead well assessment is an organized means to look at farm activities that involve either handling or generation of contaminants near the well head.
