Description Historic land use is a potentially significant factor determining present day water quality and stream integrity. Studies have shown that past land uses such as the extent and intensity of agriculture within a basin can have lasting effects on water quality and may possibly be more important to present day water quality than current land-cover conditions (Harding et al 1998). However, these relationships are poorly understood (Allen et al 2004). In this study we developed a long term history...
