The long-term environmental concerns is the impact on the aquatic ecosystem and its primary production, not only related to the increasing loads of soluble N, but the dramatic change in the proportion of the particulate and soluble Ν concentrations. In the natural system, the major Ν load was as organic-N, much of it in the particulate fraction (related to organic matter), but as illustrated (see Fig. 4) the major load in many streams in agricultural areas is now as soluble NO3 -N. In the 1970s the USGS established the National Stream Quality Accounting Network (NASQAN).
