Abstract : In 1989, the U.S. Geological Survey began a long-term research project to evaluate the effect of agricultural activities on water quality and the effectiveness of agricultural best management practices in the Beaver Creek watershed, West Tennessee. The project is being conducted jointly with other Federal, State, and county agencies, the farming community, and academic institutions, in support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Hydrologic Unit Area program. This paper presents a historical account of the project, a general description of the study area and the methods used for data collection and analyses, and a synopsis of the most significant project findings.
