Abstract: Three years of ground and surface water quality monitoring data collected from one site in the mid-Atlantic coastal plain are presented. These data suggest that delivery of P from ground water to surface water is not an issue, and that N transport from shallow ground water to surface water may be ameliorated by riparian zones surrounding tributary streams.
