The manner in which humans use land has important consequences for groundwater quality. Using land for waste disposal, recreation, agriculture, residential development, and industry releases different types and quantities of chemicals to the environment. These chemicals often end up in shallow groundwater, where they may impair water quality. Groundwater impacts from point sources, such as landfills and hazardous waste sites, are well understood. Impacts from “routine” land use, such as residential, commercial, industrial, or agricultural use, are not fully understood or readily apparent. Sources of chemicals from these land uses are called nonpoint or areawide sources. Examples include fertilized urban lawns or all feedlots in an area. This discussion focuses on water quality impacts in shallow groundwater resulting from routine land use. Keywords: agriculture; land use; nitrate; pesticides; urban; VOCs; water quality
