Water Quality: Rethinking How to Clean Our Lakes

This video is part of “Changes and Choices in the Yahara,” a mini-documentary series showcasing the major research implications from the UW-Madison Water Sustainability and Climate (WSC) project, a five-year research endeavor funded by the National Science Foundation. In this video, members of the research team explain the lessons they learned from their research on how to improve water quality in lakes. Learn more about this research here: https://wsc.limnology.wisc.edu/research/water-quality

The WSC project as a whole was focused on how to achieve water sustainability for current and future generations, given ongoing changes in climate, land use, and human demands. The research took place in Wisconsin’s Yahara Watershed, but its implications are applicable to many places in the Upper Midwest. Learn more at https://wsc.limnology.wisc.edu/

KY Agriculture Water Quality Act – TNT Farms

Tee Ray describes how his water quality plan has helped to improve their farming operation.

For more information on the Kentucky Agricultural Water Quality Act and how to make your own ag water quality plan, please visit:

– What is the Kentucky Agricultural Water Quality Act?
The Kentucky General Assembly passed the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Act in 1994. The goal of the act is to protect surface and groundwater resources from pollution as a result of agriculture and silviculture (forestry) activities.

– Whom does the Agriculture Water Quality Act affect?
The Agriculture Water Quality Act requires all landowner/land users with ten (10) or more acres that is being used for agriculture or silviculture operations to develop and implement a water quality plan based upon guidance from the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan.

– How are agriculture and silviculture defined under the Agriculture Water Quality Act?
“Agriculture operation” means any farm operation on a tract of land, including all income producing improvements and farm dwellings, together with other farm buildings and structures incident to the operation and maintenance of the farm, situated on ten (10) contiguous acres or more of land used for the production of livestock, livestock products, poultry, poultry products, milk, milk products, or silviculture products or for the growing of crops such as, but not limited to, tobacco, corn, soybeans, small grains, fruits and vegetables, or devoted to and meeting the requirements and qualifications for payments to agriculture programs under an agreement with the state or federal government.
“Silviculture” generally means that part of forestry that involves growing and harvesting of trees.

– What is the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan?
The Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan consists of best management practices from six different areas – Silviculture, Pesticides and Fertilizers, Farmstead, Crops, Livestock, and Streams and Other Waters. Each BMP includes definitions and descriptions, regulatory requirements, Agriculture Water Quality Authority requirements, design information, practice maintenance, technical assistance, cost share assistance, recommendations and references. This statewide plan will serve as a guide to individual landowners/land users as they develop water quality plans for their individual operations.

– What is the process for developing and implementing an individual water quality plan?
Individual landowners/land users must fully implement applicable requirements of the Kentucky Agriculture Water Quality Plan by October 23, 2001. Various tools are available to help landowners develop their plan. This web site contains an on-line tool to be used by landowners to assess their operation and identify best management practices to be included in their individual plan. After identifying the best management practices, landowners/land users implement these practices on their land. Assistance to implement the plan can be obtained through a variety of technical agencies.

Watersheds and Water Quality

The land that carries the water you use to a water body is called a watershed. A watershed is also known as a drainage basin because it is land that allows water to drain to marshes, streams, rivers, lakes, or to groundwater.

Homes, industries, wildlife, recreation, and transportation all depend on clean sources of water. Everyone uses it, needs it, and many of us take it for granted. These videos examine the ways water is used, profiles types of pollution, and presents a variety of perspectives on the issue of water quality. What are the biggest threats to water quality in your area?

Streamside Forest Buffers Preserving Water Quality

Studies by internationally acclaimed Stroud Water Research Center have shown that healthy forests bordering streams not only prevent numerous pollutants from reaching the water, but also multiply the stream’s natural ability to cleanse itself of pollutants that do make their way into the water. On a small farm that is typical of many in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, best management practices including contour farming, terraces, and grass waterways work in tandem with a swale and forested buffer to protect the stream–and therefore, the Chesapeake Bay.

“The science is now clear,” says Bernard Sweeney, PhD, Director of the Stroud Water Research Center, “that widespread implementation of streamside forest buffers is one of the simplest, most cost effective approaches to eliminating many of the problems of the Chesapeake Bay…”

IMA’s New Water Quality Monitoring Initiative

Seattle Ship Canal Water Quality Project

Seattle Public Utilities and King County are working together to build an underground storage tunnel. During storms, this tunnel will hold polluted water from Ballard, Fremont, Wallingford, and north Queen Anne, preventing it from overflowing into the Lake Washington Ship Canal.

The 2.7-mile, approximately 14-foot diameter tunnel will capture and temporarily hold more than 15 million gallons of stormwater mixed with some sewage that currently overflows during heavy rains. When the storm passes, flows will be sent to the existing West Point Wastewater Treatment Plant in Magnolia.

Forecasting water quality – 360°

Public utility managers will be able to predict drinking water quality more accurately thanks to a team of scientists with the Global Change Center at Virginia Tech.

About this Video:

Slide 2
Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.
Slide 3
A 1969 United Nations report defined ocean pollution as:
“The introduction by man, directly or indirectly, of substances or energy into the marine environment (including estuaries) resulting in such deleterious effects as harm to living resources, hazards to human health, hindrance to marine activities, including fishing, impairment of quality for use of sea water and reduction of amenities.”
Slide 4
The most obvious type of water pollution affects surface waters i.e oceans,lakes and rivers. For example, a spill from an oil tanker creates an oil slick that can affect a vast area of the ocean
Slide 5
Water stored underground in aquifers is known as groundwater. Aquifers feed our rivers and supply much of our drinking water. They too can become polluted, for example, when weed killers used in people’s gardens drain into the ground.
Groundwater pollution is much less obvious than surface-water pollution, but is no less of a problem
Slide 6
There are also two different ways in which pollution can occur. If pollution comes from a single location, such as a discharge pipe attached to a factory, it is known as point-source pollution. Other examples of point source pollution include an oil spill from a tanker, a discharge from a smoke stack (factory chimney), or someone pouring oil from their car down a drain.
Slide 7
A great deal of water pollution happens not from one single source but from many different scattered sources. This is called nonpoint-source pollution.
Slide 8
Sometimes pollution that enters the environment in one place has an effect hundreds or even thousands of miles away. This is known as transboundary pollution. One example is the way radioactive waste travels through the oceans from nuclear reprocessing plants in England and France to nearby countries such as Ireland and Norway.
Slide 9
How do we know when water is polluted?
One is to take samples of the water and measure the concentrations of different chemicals that it contains. If the chemicals are dangerous or the concentrations are too great, we can regard the water as polluted. Measurements like this are known as chemical indicators of water quality.

Slide 10
Another way to measure water quality involves examining the fish, insects, and other invertebrates that the water will support. If many different types of creatures can live in a river, the quality is likely to be very good; if the river supports no fish life at all, the quality is obviously much poorer. Measurements like this are called biological indicators of water quality.
Slide 11
A great deal of water pollution happens not from one single source but from many different scattered sources. This is called nonpoint-source pollution.

Water Quality Standards 101 – River Network webinar – Feb. 15th, 2012

Presenter: Merritt Frey, River Network Habitat Program

Date Recorded: Wednesday, February 15

Summary: This will be a 101-level training, suitable for river and watershed organizations, land trusts, tribal governments, and wildlife or lands groups interested in better understanding the power of one of the Clean Water Act’s core programs.

Water quality standards are the building blocks for all kinds of efforts to protect and restore our rivers, lakes and wetlands. Water quality standards establish the uses we make or want to make of our rivers (from swimming to trout habitat to irrigation) and set limits for pollutants and other parameters necessary to make rivers safe for those uses. In addition, standards establish policies that help keep clean waters clean.

What will you learn in water quality standards 101?

– The basic components of standards — designated uses, water quality criteria, and the antidegradation policy — and how they can be used to protect your rivers.
– Mechanisms for public input and influence in standards development.
– Where to find your own state’s water quality standards, and how to navigate within them.
– Opportunities for improving standards in your state and around the region — from nutrient pollution control to biocriteria development.

Canada’s Water Crisis: Indigenous Families at Risk

Canada has abundant water, yet water in many indigenous communities in Ontario is not safe to drink, Human Rights Watch said in a new report today. The water on which many of Canada’s First Nations communities on lands known as reserves depend, is contaminated, hard to access, or at risk due to faulty treatment systems. The federal and provincial governments need to take urgent steps to address their role in this crisis.
