This project was initiated to evaluate the effects of summer grazing cattle in the winter precipitation regions of the western intermountain basins of the United States on the quality and quantity of nonpoint surface runoff. Emphasis was placed on erosional, chemical, and bacteriological characteristics of runoff from a typically managed summer pasture to determine the potential contribution of this practice to nonpoint source pollution. The results show that bacterial quality is related to livestock, but there is considerable doubt that indicator bacterial water quality standards developed for point sources are appropriate for assessing non-point source bacterial contamination.
