    In , the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) implemented Source Water-Quality Assessments (SWQAs) to characterize the quality of selected rivers and aquifers used as a source of supply to community water systems in the United States. These assessments are intended to complement drinking-water monitoring required by Federal, . Water Quality Resource Assessment (NRCS-NEDC) The course introduces participants to water quality assessment tools from the National Water and Climate Center: Stream Visual Assessment Protocol and A Procedure to Estimate the Response of Aquatic Systems To Changes in Phosphorus and Nitrogen Inputs.

The assessments will evaluate those conditions and trends in 19 aquifers, most of which underlie multiple States (see map inside).

    The National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program is designed to describe the status and trends in the quality of the Nations ground- and surface-water resources and to provide a sound understanding of the natural and human factors that affect the quality of these resources. As part of the program, investigations will be conducted in 59 areas-- called study units-- throughout the Nation to. COVID Resources.

About the Program. The USGS implemented the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program in to develop long-term consistent and comparable information on streams, rivers, ground water, and aquatic systems in support of national, regional, State, and local information needs and decisions related to water-quality management and policy.

The National Water Quality Program (NWQP) of the Water Mission Area conducts water-quality monitoring, assessment, and research activities that:Assess the current quality of the Nation’s freshwater resources and how it is changing over time,Explain how human activities and natural factors (e.g., land use, water use and climatevariability) are affecting the quality of surface.

Groundwater-quality data were collected from wells as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Project of the U.S. Geological Survey National Water-Quality Program and are included in this report. Most of the wells () were sampled from January through December and 60 of them were sampled in and 74 in National field manual for the collection of water-quality data (USGS Techniques of Water-Resources Investigations Book 9, Chapter A1-A9) Design of the National Water-Quality Assessment Program: Occurrence and distribution of water-quality conditions (USGS Circular ).

A national assessment was done on water-quality conditions for about 2, domestic wells across the United States. As many as properties and contaminants, including pH, major ions, nutrients, trace elements, radon, pesticides, and volatile organic compounds, were measured.

Inthe U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began a study of more than 50 major river basins across the Nation as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) project of the National Water-Quality Program. One of the major goals of the NAWQA project is to determine how water-quality conditions change over time.

The NIFA National Water Quality Program is supported in part by the Section National Integrated Water Quality Competitive Grants Program. This program includes regional water quality coordination projects and associated direct-funded projects to support integrated, multifunctional agricultural research, extension, and education activities.

The National Water-Quality Assessment Program assesses the status of and trends in the quality of the Nation's ground- and surface-water resources. The occurrence and distribution assessment component characterizes broad-scale water-quality conditions in relation to major contaminant sources and background conditions in each study area.

The surface-water design focuses on streams. Inthe U.S. Congress established the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to develop long-term, nationally consistent information on the quality of the Nation’s streams and ground water, and thereby support scientifically sound decisions for water-quality management, regulation, and policy.
