The dataset contains estimates for total phosphorus flux from wastewater treatment plants that discharge to surface water within the Red River of the North Basin in the United States and subbasins. Shapefiles defining the subbasins are available as part of the same data release in which these data are published. Estimates of wastewater treatment plant total phosphorus flux (or load) were calculated by Tammy Ivanhnenko for the years 1978, 1980, 1982, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012. Flux estimates were based on the average discharge from the wastewater treatment plants and treatment level, both reported as part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Watershed Needs Survey,...
This data shows select streamgage locations throughout the Red River of the North Basin upstream of Emerson, Manitoba, and basin outlines for eight subbasins..
The dataset contains estimates of annual flow and annual flux in kilograms for six sites in the Red River of the North Basin (identified as basin 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8). The shape files that are part of this data release document the basins and the streamgage locations are also provided in an associated shape file.
These data describe the percent of cropland harvested as wheat, corn, and soybean within each basin (basins 1-8, see accompanying shapefiles). Data are available for other crops; however, these three were chosen because wheat is a traditional crop that has been grown for a long time in the Basin and corn and soybeans have increased in recent times because of wetter conditions, the demand for biofuels, and advances in breeding short-season, drought-tolerant crops. The data come from the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Census of Agriculture (COA) and have estimates for 1974, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012. Years with missing data were estimated estimated using multivariate imputation...
These data report the percent of crop acreage, within each basin (basins 1-8, see accompanying shapefiles), enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP).
Monthly mean precipitation for the Red River of the North Basin upstream of Emerson, Manitoba, and subbasins
Land-use estimates for the period 1970-2012 for eight subbasins of the Red River of the North Basin.
Total Phosphorus Load and Ancillary Data Related to Sources of Total Phosphorus in the Red River of the North Basin
The Red River of the North (Red River) transports phosphorus from North Dakota, Minnesota, and South Dakota, to Manitoba, Canada, and eventually into Lake Winnipeg. Phosphorus load (or flux) is the amount of total phosphorus (TP) transported by the Red River. The effect of TP load on water quality is a concern, especially with respect to downstream eutrophication issues in Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. There is interest at the State and International level to reduce TP flux – an expensive proposition, depending on the method (controlling sources, settling ponds, buffer strips, changes in land use) that is not always effective during spring runoff. The purpose of the study for which these data were developed...
Phosphorus estimates, from fertilizer and manure, for the period 1970-2012 for eight subbasins (see accompanying shapefiles) of the Red River of the North Basin in kilograms per square kilometer.
