The Resources and Environment Area (REN) of IIASA is dealing with, among other problems, pollution of water resources caused by agricultural activities. For example, nitrate pollution of water resources is very dangerous in many water supply regions. In April 1980, an exploratory study on nonpoint nitrate pollution of municipal water supply sources was initiated as a collaborative study between REN and several institutions from the IIASA National Member Organization countries. The first objective of the study is to explore approaches to analysis and control of the problem in question. The second objective is to generate a methodological outline focusing on the integration of the most relevant results of the exploratory phase. Based on this, the overall direction of further REN research can be established more clearly, which is the third objective.

This paper summarizes the work concerning the first two objectives done at IIASA between April and October 1980. The paper is based mostly on source material kindly furnished by the cooperating organizations from the NMO countries. It has been structured largely according to the main topics of a related Task Force Meeting which will be held at IIASA in February 1981. In doing so, the paper is intended to serve as a basis for the discussion at this meeting on the attainment of the study objectives mentioned above.
