Selenium is a naturally occurring trace element that can be concentrated and released in the waste materials from certain mining, agricultural, petrochemical, and industrial manufacturing operations.

Once in the aquatic environment, it can rapidly bioaccumulate and reach levels that are toxic to fish and wildlife. Most of the data were collected in the predominantly agricultural San Joaquin Valley because factors likely to impact water quality are concentrated in this area.

This focus was consistent with the first two topics selected for study at the national level by the NAWQA Program: pesticides and nutrients. and 44 trace elements to determine.

There is concern that elevated levels of selenium found in the source water of a newly formed wetland park in Las Vegas, Nevada, may have detrimental effects on local wildlife.

In this study, we collected and analyzed water samples monthly for a three year period from the inflow and outflow of the system. We also gathered dominant aquatic plants and selected terrestrial plants and analyzed.
