Extractions: The 2004 Virginia General Assembly unanimously passed House Bill 1177 transferring regulatory authority of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) programs related to municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4) and construction activities from the State Water Control Board to the Soil and Water Conservation Board and transferred oversight of these programs from the Department of Environmental Quality to the Department of Conservation and Recreation. This transfer became effective January 29, 2005

Extractions: AR Agriculture Home Crops, Soils, and Water Management This page is dedicated to provide educational training and support to County Extension Agents and producers that enhances sustainable crop production, improves profitability and competitiveness of producers, and improves the water, air, and soil environmental quality, for the purpose of allowing Arkansas producers to continue serving as a national leader in the production of food and fiber. This is to be accomplished through delivery of production updates, fact sheets, information sheets, and computer-assisted management programs that allow producers to make informed decisions in the production of row crops in Arkansas. Asian soybean rust, a potentially devastating disease, was confirmed in Arkansas and nine other southern states in late November, 2004.

Extractions: Whole Document Navigator (Click Here) Top of Document PLANT WATER SOIL-WATER RELATIONSHIPS REFERENCES Footnotes Dorota Z. Haman and Forrest T. Izuno Florida is classified as having a humid subtropical climate. The average annual rainfall for most of Florida is somewhere between 50 and 60 inches. This is more than any crop uses during a growing season. However, the typically erratic distribution of rain and Florida's predominantly sandy soils make frequent irrigation necessary in order to avoid plant stress during drought conditions. To understand why irrigation is necessary in Florida one must understand soil-plant-water relations. A proper understanding of these concepts is important to encourage wise use of irrigation systems and promoting water conservation. Water is essential in the plant environment for a number of reasons. Water transports minerals through the soil to the roots where they are absorbed by the plant. Water is also the principal medium for the chemical and biochemical processes that support plant metabolism. Under pressure within plant cells, water provides physical support for plants. It also acts as a solvent for dissolved sugars and minerals transported throughout the plant. In addition, evaporation within intercellular spaces provides the cooling mechanism that allows plants to maintain the favorable temperatures necessary for metabolic processes. Water is transported throughout plants almost continuously. There is a constant movement of water from the soil to the roots, from the roots into the various parts of the plant, then into the leaves where it is released into the atmosphere as water vapor through the stomata (small openings in the leaf surfaces). This process is called transpiration. Combined with evaporation from the soil and wet plant surfaces the total water loss to the atmosphere is called evapotranspiration.

Site Map South Florida Ecosystem Assessment: Everglades Water Management, Soil Loss, Eutrophication and Habitat and US-EPA, Office of Research and Development Executive Summary The United States Environmental Protection Agency South Florida Ecosystem Assessment Project is an innovative, long-term research, monitoring and assessment effort. Its goal is to provide timely scientific information that is critical for management decisions on the Everglades ecosystem and its restoration. The purpose of this report is to document 1993 to 1996 baseline conditions in the Everglades and Big Cypress prior to ecosystem restoration efforts. The project is unique to South Florida in two aspects: (1) its probability-based sampling approach permits quantitative statements about ecosystem health; and (2) its extensive spatial coverage and sampling intensity are unprecedented. This project: contributes to the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan by quantifying pre-restoration conditions in three physiographic regions: Everglades ridge and slough; marl prairie/rocky glades; and Big Cypress Swamp.
