What contaminates well water in agricultural areas?
mainly fertilizer and pesticides
Usually not, but have water tested for other contaminates that may need to be treated by other means. <><><> Depends on your well water. We have lived in two locations that well water was VERY "hard"- lot of dissolved minerals- mainly calcium- and a water softner was good to have. A good start, as suggested above- get your water tested, and see what you need- or don't need.
If anything contaminates the water, it would really not be good to use. It would best if you boiled water you got out of a well you aren't certain about drinking from. The above contributor neglected to mention that boiling the water will not remove heavy metals or things like arsenic from well water. True, true. I did also neglected to mention it was safe to drink after boiling it. :)
Yes, it's ok to fill from a well. It is smart to have the water tested. A pool supply comapny should be able to do this. The exception would be filling from a shallow well that may contain pesticides or petroleum (gasoline or oil). This can happen when older storage tanks rust through and the product contaminates the ground water.
Positive impacts · availability of water at any time for agricultural purposes · improved management of water supply throughout the Egyptian water system · due to increase in water supply, more areas can be used for agriculture purposes · protection from high floods as well as from low floods · generation of hydroelectric power to supply villages with electricity.

As Pakistan is an Agricultural country there is need of water all year round . The rate of evpotranspiration is also high as well as the temp is high and climate is dry so the water keeps on evaporating And even the water table decreases , there is no schedule of Moon soon rains as they are delayed by a month or half and It effects the crops of Pakistan . Hope you got the…
All of the agricultural activity around the Tigris and Euphrates river system has caused desertification to develop. This is when a dry land region starts to lose its water supply and the vegetation and wildlife that come with the water as well as become arid increasingly. The areas around the Tigris and Euphrates are also suffering from soil salination Ð the salt content in the soil is increasing.
The best type of water for babies is bottled water with the fact that a lot of tap water has too much lead and too much other products in. Double check with your doctor, but if you live in an area that is close to an agricultural, mining, or forestry and logging area, as well as utilizing a well for your water source, the best idea would be to get bottled water.
Most is, with the exception of that which is close to the ocean where the salts cannot be filtered out. In most areas, ground water is clean enough to drink. If you are on well water, there will be a higher concentration of minerals in the water and can cause keloids, or kidney stones. Even well water should be filtered too.
California water shortages are a combination of several things.High population, agriculture and waste have contributed to California's water problems. The aquifer and several lakes have been drained due to overuse and drought. Water also comes to the state from the Colorado River in Arizona, but that has been reduced by drought as well. Water laws regarding being able to use the excess water left by other entities have also started to be enforced, so that…
Pricing is regional. It will vary depending on water levels, ground types, economy of the area, and other factors. In the southeastern United States, the cost average at about $2,000 to 3,500. In mountain areas like Tennessee, they run a little more. They can be around $5,000. This is true of areas with deep clay as well. Keep in mind there are plenty of related expenses as well. If an environmental study is needed, they…
As far as insurance and weather terminology, the areas that flood easily are referred to as "flood prone" or "low lying" areas. These are the areas where people need to keep an eye on when heavy rain and flood warnings are issued, as well as when rivers have reached flood level. The low areas near a river that floods easily when water levels rise are call a "flood plain."
Land fill is thrown ito valeys or holes that were empty the water that ended up in these depresions would either run of or soak into the ground and become a part of the well water. If these holes or depresions are filled up with garbage even if they are sealed so no water can flow throught it which would be unlikely, the dinamic of the areas water flow is changed.
== == Water can very well find it's way through the floor. It is usually at areas where the tile meets a vertical area at a shower or tub. Movement can occur in these areas. It is best to caulk joints such as these, instead of grout. The caulking will flex, but the grout will crack and allow water to penetrate.
