Correlation of median nitrate concentration in groundwater with housing density for 18 sample areas on Cape Cod yields a Pearson correlation coefficient ofwhich is significant at the 95 % confidence level. In five of nine sample areas where housing density is greater than one unit/acre, nitrate concentrations exceed 5 mg of nitrate/L (the Barnstable County planning goal for nitrate) in.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has been investigating groundwater and surface-water resources on Cape Cod for more than 50 years. Recent studies have focused on the sources of water to public-supply wells, ponds, streams, and coastal areas; transport and discharge of nitrogen and contaminants of emerging concern derived from domestic and municipal wastewater disposal; fate and transport of.

On Cape Cod, water moves about one foot (30 cm) per day through the soil. It is pushed by gravity toward the shore or tidal river where it is gradually discharged and lost from the aquifer. The aquifer on the upper Cape extends down to bedrock.

This bedrock is much deeper under the lower Cape where the freshwater sits on top of salt ground-water. The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and the Cape Cod Planning Commission have identified coastal erosion, flooding, and shoreline change as the number one risk affecting the heavily populated 1, square kilometers that constitute Cape Cod (CZM,Author: Michael D Roberts, Lauren Bullard, Shaunna Aflague, Kelsi Sleet.
