Care and Maintenance of Irrigation Wells - AE97
Effective irrigation is not possible without a reliable water source. In North Dakota, the availability of relatively shallow aquifers with high-quality water has spurred the development of irrigation in many areas. Irrigation wells must produce a high volume of water during the driest months: July and August. To maintain consistent, high production from year to year, a well requires annual maintenance, just like any other piece of valuable equipment.

Soil, Water and Plant Characteristics Important to Irrigation - AE1675
Irrigation is the application of water to ensure sufficient soil moisture is available for good plant growth throughout the growing season.

North Dakota Manure Fertilizer Use Recommendations - NM1629
Multiple years of manure fertilizer use research in ND have shown that manure can be used as a fertilizer but there are management considerations. If the manure is used on short season crops such as wheat, some supplemental nitrogen fertilizer is needed. If used on a longer season crop such as corn, manure can be a complete substitution for commercial fertilizer.

What's Wrong With My Water? Choosing the Right Test - WQ1352
Households using municipal or rural water supplies can depend on the utility to follow Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines for maximum levels of contaminants. An annual report is distributed to the users. Private well owners are not monitored by government agencies. This means the owner must take responsibility for the condition of the system. Routine testing establishes a water-quality record. If a contaminant problem develops, correlating the cause is easier if you keep a water-quality record.

Flood Recovery Guide for Green Infrastructure in Communities - F1696
The historic floods of 2011 caused millions of dollars in damage and imposed great hardship on those affected. Low-lying areas along the Missouri and Souris rivers sustained unprecedented damage. The floods negatively impacted the trees and forests in these areas as well. Although the challenges posed by natural disasters can be quite variable, some common components must be accounted for in green infrastructure when such events occur. These include ensuring public safety; assessing damage; removing, disposing of and using wood waste; interagency coordination; and replanting efforts.
