Abstract

This study presents the results of a countywide volunteer sampling of private well-water. Volunteers collected 231 well-water samples in Audubon County for nitrate-nitrogen (NO3,-N) and total coliform bacteria analyses during September 1988. Questionnaires were completed at all sites to document well construction, age and depth of well, well placement relative to septic system, barnyard/feedlots, location of chemical mixing/tank rinsing, and presence of abandoned wells.
