Surface runoff from these areas is limited by soil-water storage rather than infiltration capacity. This situation usually results from high water tables or soil moisture contents in near-stream areas.

The boundaries of surface runoff-producing areas will be dynamic both. Concern about the impact of nutrient loadings on the environment, that is, the relation of livestock and poultry manure to groundwater contamination, is well- documented both inside the United States (Brown et al., ; Frink, ; Harris, ; Lanyon and Beegle, ; Madison et al., ; Patni and Culley, ; Pinkowski et al., ; University of Wisconsin-Extension and Wisconsin.

Antibiotic use in livestock is the use of antibiotics for any purpose in the husbandry of livestock, which includes treatment when ill (therapeutic), treatment of a herd of animals when at least one is diagnosed as ill (metaphylaxis), and preventative treatment (prophylaxis).The use of subtherapeutic doses in animal feed and water to promote growth and improve feed efficiency became illegal in.

The first publication, Nutrient BMPs for Golf Courses in Louisiana and Mississippi (LSU Ag Center Pub.

), addresses many issues that are equally important to protecting water quality on golf courses. The terraces retain water for cops at each level and reduce topsoil erosion by controlling runoff.

Using contour planting which can be used to reduce topsoil erosion which involves plowing and planting crops in rows across the slope of the land rather than up and down. Each row acts as a small dam to help hold topsoil and to slow water runoff. Water resource management is the activity of planning, developing, distributing and managing the optimum use of water is a sub-set of water cycle management.

Water is essential for our survival. The field of water resources management will have to continue to adapt to the current and future issues facing the allocation of water.

Rivers, lakes, groundwater aquifers, and coastal estuaries are crucial to public health, economic development, and recreational opportunities.
