Surface runoff from snowmelt and rainfall in eastern South Dakota was measured during a three year period. The size of the research sites ranged from 7.18 to 18.69 acres, and all sites had crops of corn, oats, pasture or hayland. Composite samples of the runoff were used for various chemical, physical and biological determinations. Runoff samples from 108 snowmelt events and 36 rainfall events were collected. Sediment losses were considerably lower than anticipated. Pesticide concentrations were low in both water and sediment samples, and were usually less than the analytical test limits. Coliform and fecal levels were consistently greater than accepted surface water quality criteria. Most of the nutrients were found to be soluble and/or associated with snowmelt runoff.
