Water Quality Information Center

Citizens, farmers, and other water users all have roles to play concerning water quality, both passively and actively. Citizens participate in water monitoring programs, water conservation, and serve as advisors to decision makers. Farmers also modify th eir behaviors to safeguard water resources. These citations highlight resources, research and tools available on citizen or public particpation in water quality issues.

    The need to better understand landlord involvement in decision-making related to pesticide use and water quality issues is evidenced by several trends. These trends include the increasing documentation of water pollution by farm pest icides, the changing characteristics of farm ownership and operator tenure, and evolutions in resource policy and protection planning. This paper utilizes a theoretical approach to the sociology of land tenure to interpret results from an investigation of landlord involvement in environmental decision making regarding pesticide selection on rented land. Eight counties with high susceptibility of water contamination by pesticides were selected for study. Structured, in-person interviews were administered t o in-county landlords, and a mail survey was used to poll out-of-county landlords. Results indicate that participation is generally low with very little difference between landlord groups. Renters make most of the organizational and operational decisions on rented farmland. Landlord participation is predominantly based on economic, rather than on social or environmental, factors. Furthermore, while economic variables are important predictors of participation for both groups, gender and social ties to the renter tend to increase local landlord involvement, but not absentee involvement. These results have important implications for both federal programs and further research on land tenure and environmental stewardship.

    In rural development it is accepted that many rural problems derive from the way decisions are made. Rural Community Councils play an intermediary role and their community development is geared not only to changing communities, but e ven more to changing the ways authorities operate. But how do their field officers do this? It is argued that field officers work in a local, national and international context which shapes expectations of their role and of the outcome of their work. Thei r rhetoric of community development is often more radical than the context would seem to allow. Out of the tension between context and rhetoric, the actual practice of community workers is negotiated. Changes in the context, rhetoric and practice of commu nity development are traced through three phases in the 1970s and 1980s. A case study of a village with a failed water supply examines the way the author, as a community worker, negotiated her practice. It shows the limitations on putting into practice a rhetoric of empowerment and participatory development which sought to change the way authorities relate to residents.

  41. Rural nonpoint source pollution control in Wisconsin: the limits of a voluntary program.

    Descriptors: water-quality, watershed-management, water-policy, water-pollution, Wisconsin.
    This paper examines the relationship between best management practices, institutional needs, and improved water quality within the watersheds of Wisconsin's program for controlling rural nonpoint source pollution. The first section d escribes the federal requirements for state nonpoint source programs and the legislative and management methods the state of Wisconsin uses to put those requirements into practice. The emphasis of the paper, described in the second section, is the institu tional difficulty in evaluating the success of a large, integrated water quality program. Measurements which are investigated include (1) watershed water quality before and after implementation of BMPs; (2) program participation as measured by eligible vs . participating landowners, BMPs considered necessary vs. BMPs implemented, or dollars allocated to the NPS program vs. dollars expended; and (3) institutional goal coordination and management effectiveness. It is found that, despite the size and sophisti cation of Wisconsin's NPS program, there is little if any improvement in ambient water quality in these watersheds, probably because of a general lack of adequate participation in this voluntary program.
