Abstract

The Central Nebraska Basin (CNB) is the site of intensive agricultural activity, in part because of the good irrigation supplies provided by the Middle Platte alluvial aquifer system. In this paper, the authors describe the integrated modeling system that addresses the economic and environmental tradeoffs associated with agricultural conjoint source pollution management in the CNB study area and provide a brief overview and summary of the field-level Area Study survey data that will operationalize the system.
