dc.descriptionProceedings of the 2001 Georgia Water Resources Conference, April 26 and 27, 2001, Athens, Georgia.en_US
dc.description.abstractA mutually exclusive relationship exists between iron and nitrate-N in the ground waters of Georgia. No high nitrate was detected in the presence of high iron and no high iron in the presence of high nitrate. The proposed mechanism for this relationship is that anaerobic microbial activity causes a process of reduction in which first nitrate is denitrified and then fetric iron is reduced to ferrous iron. The consequence of this relationship is that groundwater contamination by nitrate-N is not widespread in Georgia, due in part to reducing conditions in at least a portion of the aquifer system. Nitrate-N is commonly used as an environmental indicator to trace the impact of agricultural land-use activities on groundwater. In cases where agricultural chemicals or wastes have the potential to leach into groundwater and iron levels are high in the groundwater, the absence of nitrate would not rule out other impacts.en_US
