Available surface water-quality data were used to provide an initial assessment of current water-quality conditions for 1978-86, define long-term trends in constituent concentrations, and relate current water-quality conditions and trends to human and natural factors in the lower Kansas River basin, Kansas and Nebraska. This basin drains 15,300 square miles of predominantly agricultural land and is one of seven areas selected for study as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Program.
