Untimely and rrdsappli- cation of animal manures or fer- tilizer, and the improper instal- lation and/or operation of on- site sewage systems may create excessive levels of nitrates in soil and water. Analysis of more than 6,000 water samples from rural Missouri collected since 1963 show that 42% contained more than 5 ppm NO3-N. These studies indicate that animal wastes, improperly constructed shallow wells, and septic-tank drainage are the main sources of this contaimination. Private drinking water wells which are regenerated from water f'dtered through soils or replenished by surface runoff water and which are located in close proximity to barn lots, feedlot operations, areas of fer- tilizer applications or on-site sewage disposal may exceed recommended drinking-water standards. Drinking water con- taining nitrate levels above 10 mg/1; expressed as (NO3-N), are considered unsatisfactory for human consumption. Humans and livestock may experience health-related problems due to excessive nitrate levels; how- ever, infants are extremely sus- ceptible to acute nitrate poison- ing because of certain bacteria that may live in their digestive systems.

Proper management of the sources of nitrates is also neces- sary to avoid adversely effect- ing the water quality of streams and aquatic plant ecosystems. Algae and aquatic plants, which also utilize nitrates for plant growth, may become over abun- dant from excessive nitrate lev- els. When the excess growth decays, oxygen is consumed and undesirable odors and flavors develop. The cost of water treat- ment for domestic use is in- creased and there is difficulty in maintaining water quality. Also the growth may affect recre- ational uses of water and shorten the life of reservoirs. A good example to demonstrate the ef- fects of nitrate contaimination on stream quality is found in Southern Missouri where wa- tercress, a sometimes undesir- able aquatic plant is only ob- served if the stream receives nitrate contamination at some season of the year. In addition, streams which receive contami- nation from animal manures and/ or improperly constructed or operated on-site sewage systems nd-of- ter are colorless, tasteless, and odorless, and can only be de-  MONROE CITY, MO Small Swine Farms toc00o00 through water testing. may also contain other patho- g, enic (disease-causing) organ- isms such as fecal bacteria, vi, ruses, parasites, etc. In order to protect the public health and to improve the qual, ! ity of streams and private water wells, proper management for: the sources of nitrates is of vital importance. Timely and proper ". applications of nitrogen-enrich- ! ment supplements and the con-. struction of on-site sewage sys- tems - according to recom- mended guidelines - can pro-! vide environmental and eco-: nomic benefits and help to pre- 7 serve stream quality for future : generations. er 95 DAKOTA CLUB CAB V-6, auto, air ...................................................................... 14,995 92 GMC SAFARI EXT VAN loaded, all wheel ............................................................ 15,900 91 FORD ESCORT WGN auto, air, like new ................................................................ 6,950 88 FORD T-BIRD V-8, auto, loaded, nice .................................................................... 6,575 93 FORD F250 XLT 460, V-8, Club Cab, auto, 12,000 mi ......................................... 19,250 89 CHEV S-10 4 Cyl, 5 slxl, air .................................................................................... 4,995 91 FORD F150 XLT 300, 6 cyl, auto, air, super nice .................................................. 11,500 92 CHEV 1500 SILVERADO 350, V-8, auto, loaded, nice ......................................... 12,700 ,.,; eve Lovegreen or Jim Ires LOVEGREEN Hugt. 24  34-795-4477 Show-Me and Water spon - "Environ- of Large vs. -A De- 22, 1995, at um in focus on the of the and brings to- of large bns. regula- tions and trends in the swine industry will also be presented by representatives of the Mis- souri Department of Natural Resources and the University of Missouri.
