Prop Of Ythsie Borehole – SEPA Location Code
at Prop of Ythsie was purpose drilled by SEPA in March 2008 to
monitor nitrate and baseline chemistry in the Ythan area. Samples
from this site are collected and analysed monthly.
Chemical analysis data are available from
August 2008 to present and include physical data such as pH and
electro-conductivity, major ions, nitrate, metals.
The graph below summarises the analytical
results for nitrate from 2009 to present.

This site also has a logger installed that
records groundwater levels at hourly intervals, with data available
from April 2008 to the present.
explanation of nitrate concentrations is available in the Ythan
